The Three Painters

Painters
There were three
All busily
Looking out to sea

Brush in hand
Measuring the view
Checking the lines
Deciding what to do

A cool breeze
Blew from behind
But no sunshine
Did they find

Textures and form
Lines and colour
The language of art
Is like no other

On the canvas
The paint flows
Slowly in bits
The picture shows

A stroke here
A dab there
The shapes develop
Out of thin air

After some time
When the work is done
It’s time for lunch
And out comes the sun
