The girl who wanted to be a painting
 
To be forever beautiful,
aging with a patina of
centuries – not Dorian
but a landscape of
green meadows with
a small stream where
deer would drink
and the woodsman’s ax
would never fall.
Perhaps the lighting would
change subtly and one
or two would notice
and say Is that picture
more foggy than I remember?
And yet again, No,
it’s a sunny day.
And she, of the painting,
drifting on the stream,
would say
Ah ha!
and smile.
