“The Sitting”

The lady yearns for briefest rest

held captive by the artist quest.

A simple pause; her smile beguiles.

Her almond eyes belie the lies.

Mid curve of  lips, a cautious glance.

But youth is harmed; so brief the dance.

And, stealthily, her feelings flee.

Her cries are hidden hastily

behind her smile.
