Learning To Play

I sit with Mama,
Lean into her.
She smells of lilies
And cocoa beans.

I say I want
To learn to play,
But it’s just an excuse
To feel her warm embrace.

My Mama is pretty,
Her cheeks are pink.
Her hair is soft,
Her smiles are sweet.

When I grow up,
I’ll be like her
And all the men
Will admire me.



The painting is The Music Lesson by Frederic Lord Leighton.
