A PAINTER’S DESPAIR A painter fancies Nature and spends days to paint the dawn In its rising and its shadows before it disappears Into the surge of village life. Nature watches life on the move, as does the day It peeps at the painter's work posed on a large wooden easel, While the painter keeps pouring his heart, Brushes and paints in hand, to create a vibrant palette. The painter gazes at his artwork. In his eyes, the dawn he beholds Is not the same as on his canvas. Nature, gracious and humble, bows to the artist's dawn. Paints fuse to give the dawn a glow, the like of which Nature Could never have composed. In despair is the artist – he has failed to ornament Dawn’s Natural smile for the day. Two perspectives of the same Dawn, so distant, yet united in one.
