Blue Boy, Revisited


GAINSBOROUGH'S BLUE BOY


MOTHER GOOSE'S BLUE BOY



GRANDMA'S BLUE BOY



GRANDMA'S BLUE BOY
WITH EGG IN HAND 
AND ITCHY FINGERS



Little boy blue, come throw your egg.
Your mom's in the kitchen; just aim for her leg.
Where's the little boy with the mischievous grin?
Why, he's hatching a plan for his egg. Are you in?
Will you stop him? No, not I.
I'd rather see him let 'er fly!

When I saw the title of your post, I wondered if it was Gainsborough. My mom had a copy of that on the wall in her room when I was growing up, and I attribute being around art early in life to my degree in art history. But no masterpiece can compare to the love of family. What a doll he is!

Sweet picture! Love the poem - does that prose just flow out of you? What is your creative process? I am amazed and impressed at your ability to write poetry.

Thanks so much for sharing.
