She has me poised in swathed chair 
Her canvas primed to capture there 
My image in such glorious state 
That I can hardly contemplate 
Just how she seeks to edify 
That which is seen in her mind's eye 
And whilst I sit she paints me still 
Adjusting hue and light until 
At last her breath bestows a sigh 
The finished masterpiece is nigh.
