The Start

Mother does her very best to prevent
Cheating in this siblings' game of Chess
Teaching honesty is her soul intent
As she hovers in white robe and covered tress

Gifted mother who foraged the female
Artists' way to new dimensions in that day
Opened doors for future artists to prevail
'Twas a woman of strength that lead the way 

An artist who painted her families' life
After studying under Michelangelo
Who encouraged her to be more than housewife
To rise above dresses of calico

A mother with a gift not hidden
A call to women to dreams forbidden
