With depression her heart does sink Her companion comes in eye blink Without a word that she does say Compassion is shown both this way No words are shared, no given ink Puppy holds her heart in a wink Her face carries not such a drink This punishment in prime of day With depression She seems to be in state of think From her imagination brink She sits there sadly not to lay Dog's on her shoulder that he may Bring companionship, nothing pink With depression

    It was so interesting to see the different takes on "Sympathy"; all different, yet bound together by the painting. I enjoyed your words on the sadness of the child and the sympathy of the pup.
