A Verve hides in a Stygian mood

Sara beamed at the display of her children’s art on her refrigerator. She remembered when she was young and how she created art for her parents. She painted and colored with verve. As she grew older she was told to put away her daydreaming artistic ways. Instead, she was told to focus on her ABC’s and multiplication tables. With her joy of creation not acceptable she fell into a stygian mood. She hated it when her father trammeled her creativity by removing all of her color crayons and art supplies one day. She swore from that moment on she would never do that to her own children. She looked at the drawings again and smiled.
