Missing Art

My heart misses a little oil painting,

More likely a print, I know.

It hung outside our cabin suite

as we sailed the North Sea:

A Chinese girl, shaded by an awning,

Surrounded by her two cats,

Peaceful as the rain trickled down

In a courtyard in a far away land.

I have found similar compositions,

But they’re not quite right. See,

This depiction reminded me of me

Well, not exactly me,

but you know what I mean,

and my little fur beasts sitting at home.

Similar markings and all.

It would complement some decor I have,

Collected from Epcot, and from family

And friends who visited the East.

Hopefully one day I will find it again;

And this time, insist it be mine.
