A Bleeding Heart MAG

Deep-set curves and sweeping lines
A majestic bird his pencil defines
Detailed eyes and shaded wings
A sense of the tamed wild things
The flower's petals blooming wide
Winding grooves the charcoal rides
A bleeding heart that's drawn with care
Deep, dark secrets lying there
The tired artist tries and tries
To make the picture come alive
* * * * *
Lying between files and work
A forgotten masterpiece does lurk
Careful strokes lost through time
A picture more ancient than song and rhyme
But still the faded heart does bleed
As surely as this poem you read

Our teacher showed us a picture of an odd bird perched on a flowering plant and told us to write.
