Vincent, are you pretty matey?
Vincent are you beautiful?
Passionate as any pirate,
mad and wonderful?

How can throats not sadden
to think of how you showed
standing at an easel, dancing,
heart as pure as newly melting snow.


  1. Ummm. Very nice. I especially like the line "heart as pure as newly melting snow." Wonderful.

  2. Brings tears to my eyes. I often think of the life of Vincent Van Gogh, in that he made nothing from his work when he was alive. And now his paintings keep other people wealthy.

  3. You captured the heart of the artist well. Van Gogh is a favorite of mine.

  4. Ha, the mention of Pirates made me smile.
