In her mid twenties and in her prime
And her work will improve in time
As in the World of art she builds her name
Camille is on the road to fame.
Brown eyes and shoulder length dark hair
And down to earth with beauty rare
And one might say she has appeal
The young and beautiful Camille.
Of the many artists one of the few
Who gets paid for the work she do
In her work art dealers interest show
And her reputation grow.
She remains untainted by conceit
And she's nice to talk to and nice to meet
And her soul in her art she reveal
The young and talented Camille.
Life for her no bed of flowers
In her studio she works for hours
Painting on vases, cups and plates
Things of great beauty she creates.
One who by example lead
She has worked hard to succeed
And better things ahead I feel
For the beautiful Camille.
