Font Color='#880000'A Poet's Art/Font
An artist paints his life from mark to end,
by David Zvekic
from mix to finish, like the pigment oils
that while on painter's pallet blend,
on canvas cling to boast the master's toils.
O see me through and find such painting plain,
composed by introspection and long years
of shock, of distant shores, of light, of pain;
so with each dab some fuller portrait nears.
And though it were not trivial to frame,
not trivial at all but love extreme;
the misery of art is mine to blame,
and gained by it, my muse, and by your theme:
No life, nor breath, nor other poet's art
will ever bare so dear the likeness of your heart.
