Clerihew-Miss Mona Lisa

 Mona Lisa, the lady I greatly adore
See her sophisticated beauty I implore
Put her portrait not in a large frame, but thin
She will surely give to you all her sourest grin

    Yes the famous mysterious smile.......of the Mona Lisa. Would love to see the painting some day.

    Her portrait hangs in a large room in the Louvre in Paris, and though there are many large beautiful paintings in that same room, there is always a crowd surrounding her much smaller powrtrait. So you see, she does have a reason to keep smiling! I enjoyed your clerihew Leonora.

    La Gioconda was a bella regazza. If she was living today, I would go after her right away. Her portrait would not be enough to make my heart sing. I would be fervently pursuing the real thing.
