Annabel's poem

 

The Empty Canvas

I am blank, no color at all.
I wish to be famous, like the Mona Lisa
Make me amazing, magnificent,
Perfect.

Is Di Vinci still alive? Can you get him?
I can't be sculpted, built or molded.
Just pick up a pencil, draw a line or
a dot, and see where it takes you.
I know you will do fine. Then I will be
amazing, magnificent, and perfect.

They'll put me in the Louvre
where people can see.
They'll put me in art books
and never again be forgotten.
You and I will go down in history.
~Annabel Pulley

I have no doubt that Annabel will one day be famous. I just hope she will remember all the little people, like me.

This girl doesn't surprise me. I tried to give you a heads-up when she was three.
I knew there was genius there when she could pull up tomato plants faster than I could plant them.

Very nice. I love poetry written by people I know. I feel connected. Annabel will be famous some day, probably as a gifted surgeon. She will go down in the medical hx books.
