by Felina Silver Robinson

Wrapped in a long white dress

With baby blue trimming

And my

Gold medal

Resting proudly on my chest

In my art loft

Filled with pieces of all that I am

Cherubs

Knick·knacks

Fruits

And

Flowers

I sit upon my artist chair

Painting for you this floral portrait

So all can sit and stare

From their very own artist chair
