No Constraints

She’s a born artist.
Dali with a twist.
Of all the gifts she’ll choose paints,
or colored pencils,
these are essential.
Finished product -  no constraints.

Colors sensory.
Without being taught to see,
she knows form and line,
loses herself in time,
even though she’s only three.

(The Alouette
consists of two or more stanzas of 6 lines each, with the following set rules:
Meter: 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 7
Rhyme Scheme: a, a, b, c, c, b)
