A girl walks up to me

in the art room

as I color a picture

With brilliant red hair

and a girlish grin

she holds her picture up for me

It is more beautiful than mine

"Sea Monsters" she says

"They are angry sea monsters"

I ask why they are angry

"They are unappreciated" she says

"As they sit alone at the bottom of the ocean"

I tell her I appreciate them

She smiles and hugs me

"I knew you would appreciate them" she says

Then with brilliant red hair

and a girlish grin

she gives the picture to teacher

who hangs it on the wall.
