A Childís Masterpiece

Today I found a can of paint.
The paintbrush was there, too.
Mommy must have left it
when her painting was all through.

It was such a pretty color,
I learned you call it 'red'.
It made me think of pretty things
that same color in my head.

I painted rainbows from the sky,
and hearts, and bows for hair.
When Mommy saw it, she got mad
and sat me in a chair.

She told me I was naughty
and to think of what Iíd done.
While I thought, she scrubbed and scrubbed
and cleaned off all my fun.

Iíll never understand my mom,
why she laughed when we were through...
I only said I wished
the pretty color had been blue.

Delightful! What an astute observation of the behaviour of both adult and child. Sounds like the kind of Mum we all need!

I put half a sheet on the kitchen wall and let my daughter paint and color whatever she wanted. I still have that sheet and shes 24 now. Great memories Cj. And another fun write!

Heart of a child. Mind of a sage. What an inspiration you are.

If I were the 'guilty' one here, I would want you for my mommy. You have a true heart of understanding. I think all children have their 'first' masterpiece unceremoniously erased from the wall.

Great poem CJ! It is one of those poems all moms relate to. Children never understand their mothers;-)(and vice versa, most times;-)

Reviewed by Joyce Bowling

Precious! The budding artist created a masterpiece (even if Mommy didn't think so), and the author (YOU, CJ) captured it beautifully in verse. Double the pleasure and fun!
