Vincent’s Chair 1888

I sat there all alone,
After many visitors
Have come and gone.

Then I met an artist,
Who graced me with his presence;
A peculiar man I must insist.

He asked to paint my portrait,
An offer I couldn’t protest,
So I sat there feeling irate.

Now I’m cemented in history,
Through one man’s passion for art,
Each painting a truelove story.

So, to the man with orange hair,
I’ll always value our friendship;
I am known as “Vincent’s Chair.”

    Abe, I laughed when I read the last line. I love Van Gogh so much, I named a cat after him. Of course, it was an "orange" tabby! I really enjoyed this!
