The Artist

Summer sun shines
Flowers proliferate
Insects buzz
People pontificate

A golden beach
A place of joy
For a dog
And it’s toy

The little child
Tottering along
Touches the world
While singing a song

An artist sits
To take in the view
It takes some time
To know what to do

The magic begins
With the swirl of a brush
Capturing the essence
Without any rush

Light strokes first
To find the light
Bold stokes follow
When it is right

Add some colour
In the spaces
Give life
To the faces

After some time
The painting is done
A moment in time
People having fun

The artist sits
As the sun goes down
Another day over
Now it’s back to town
