EPIGRAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Vain painter, why dost strive my face to draw
Last Line: And if you'll paint me like, then paint a sound.


VAIN painter, why dost strive my face to draw.
With busy hands, a goddess' eyes ne'er saw?
Daughter of air and wind, I do rejoice
In empty shouts, without a mind a voice.
Within your ears, shrill echo, I rebound,
And if you'll paint me like, then paint a sound.
