Based on a picture of my son that reminds me of a Waterhouse painting.

The Boy With the Waterhouse Hair

You light up the world,

My angel boy,

My boy with the Waterhouse hair—

Gleaming golden curls,

Clear blue eyes,

Patrician nose;

Your clothes disheveled;

Lazy unmatched colors;

Dirty green shoes

In Nature’s green glow.

Your beauty shines bright—

The sea nymph Undine,

If she were a boy,

Could never compare

To my angel boy

My boy with the Waterhouse hair.

i looked at the waterhouse painting, it wasn't what i was expecting! to see your beautiful boy in the painting was so sweet, and the poem itself is equally sweet and dear.
