What means a critique when it comes from me?
I’ve not a touch of talent so, you see
I be a foolish fumbler, in the dark
with no guidelines for judging Hannelie.
I chose this form that’s close to mono-rhyme
‘cus she promotes one color at a time
and somehow knows which one to emphasize
which makes her pictures simple and sublime.
I like to look at princesses, (and whores)
and girls who wear bikinis by the shores,
I don’t comprehend each time their appeal,
I need not know the whys and the wherefores.
And thus it is when paintings speak to me-
I’d like a painting wrought by Hannelie.
