Claude Monet
The man, when old, was very fond
of water lilies on a pond.
He often painted this fine view
and kept his variations few.
At times, he chose to add a bridge,
but never any personage.
Some critics who go after facts
maintain he then had cataracts.
Most other lookers do not care
what led to art beyond compare.
