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!

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;-)

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!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
