Hi,

The real reason for Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile is captured in my poem that I wrote several years ago.

Kind regards

Mona Lisa

Leonarda he teasa
The young Mona Lisa
“Why you smila like so?
This is odd way of smiling
And is very beguiling,
You got a dark secret, I know.”

Mona she place a
Hand to her face a,
And she make a shy reply:
“Papa, I thmila like thith
Becauth I gotta no tith.”
Then she break a down and cry.

Now Papa da Vinci
Say: “Shush now my Chichi,
I tell you for what I do.
I paint a your picture,
A beauuutiful picture,
And we hang it in the Louvre.”
