Adorable, but I would say that!
"Alice the painter" by Colin Lowley

Alice - you were so cute then! and are still so now.
Three years later, time has shown you how,
to greet and whisper, sweet words in my ear.
My granddaughter Alice, I love you so dear.

I watch you draw - you have the patience of a saint,
and produce paintings - that would make Picasso faint!
Because you are so good - he in my eyes, just a fool.
I predict you will be a painter- when you grow tall.

Will I be around? - fifteen years is a stretch.
Nobody knows, no crystal balls yet.
But in my memory- from yesterday until then,
you will be remembered, for your art with a pen.


Author Notes
