THE PRICE, by            
First Line: I painted a picture in gladness
Last Line: Was the blood from a broken heart.
Subject(s): Beauty; Hearts; Paintings & Painters


I painted a picture in gladness
And goodly it looked to me,
But the beauty in it that thrilled me,
Alas! the world could not see.

I painted a picture in sadness
And the whole world called it art,
But the color I used to paint it
Was the blood from a broken heart.
