What a wonderfully simple poem full of messages. I love the idea of choosing your place in a painting and I am going to use this for my students. they can choose the artist and the painting. Thank you Moniza for brightening my day!

There used to be a poster of this. Does anyone know if it still exists? It is a fantastic poem.
