Her Red Apron

Painting #8
L'Enfant au Tablier Rouge, 1886 by Berthe Morisot

Her Red Apron

Tied to your apron strings 
she wandered, wondered 
wondrous things 
about the snow 
covered trees. 

Put your mind at ease 
now, once and for all. 
Her young mind 
is colorful and curious, 
more privileged than most, 
spoiled but respectful 
and courteous as 
a little princess 
in fairy tale land.

She will dream 
unlike your dreams 
for her, but her own. 

She shall flourish 
in time, her red apron 
reflecting the color 
of her love 
for you.

Another great write, Danetta. You bring the image of these paintings alive through your words. And the ending lines of these poems are amazingly well written. T.J
