A Poem of Love and Loss

In places with a sunlit glaze
A painter lived lost in a daze
Vincent was his name Van Gogh
A troubled soul we have grown to know

His brush in hand his mind on fire
He painted scenes that would inspire
His colors bold his strokes so free
A style unique for all to see

The people thought him strange you know
His clothes were so tattered his heart…
