Paintings

Posted: January 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

I don’t really have anything to say about this poem..so here is my poem called Paintings:

She hides behind thick bullet proof glass,

so no one may touch her

all they are allowed to do is gawk.

There are several hidden cameras trained on her,

making sure she is not stolen.

so she is watched all day and all night long.

The cold metal frame covers the frayed edges of her canvas.

she has been seen by millions of people for over 350 years.

Her dark green dress illuminates her beautiful face

and her flowing black hair surrounds her face,

hiding her ears.

Her knowing smile has confused many people for centuries,

because  she is the Mona Lisa,

another great work by the magnificent Leonardo Da Vinci
