Shall \ Draw your Portrait ?
AM a little artist

How can I draw a portrait
With my pencil in my hand,

Till
peace

and sunshine comes ? And I want to draw your portrait, Dark looks and frowning faces And make a picture grand.

Make sad and dreary homes. But I must have faces smiling,

Sweet smiles and gentle kindness Hair neatly combed and dressed,

With beauty best agree :
Or vain will be my toiling,

Then I can draw a portrait
To show

you
at

That all will like to see.
your
best.

BENJAMIN Gough.
