Figures stand about a canvas,

Depict a poor portraiture,

In black and white monochrome.

Sketched in pallid discoloration,

Delineating a distorted image

Of a feminine caricature.

Portraying a leaden expression

To the sightless blind.

Tracing a passionate devotion

To the contemplative mind.

Spelling an ardent affection

In a crude syllable,

Illustrating a revered adoration.

In idolised expectation.

On a tarnished impersonation,

In a sallow, ashen shade,

Lies the apex of tender passion

Voiced in an emaciated cascade.

The love, toil and inclination live

In a crude pencil perspective.
