    If I Were An Artist





    Were I a great artist,
    and people were canvas,
    I’d paint them with kindness,
    they’d live on greener grass.

    With a pallet full of color,
    a magic wand for a brush,
    I’d paint a new honor--
    that gives the spine a rush.

    Were I a fine sculptor,
    and the earth was my clay,
    I’d mold it as a game,
    we’d all be kids and play.

    With skills of a sculptor,
    and the tools of the trade,
    I’d sculpt men of beauty,
    there’d be no masquerade.

    Were I a conductor
    with orchestra in hand,
    I’d wave up a symphony--
    we‘d skip to the promise land.

    With drumming’s of furry,
    drowning out screams for war,
    Angel’s singing violins--
    leading strings-- to heaven’s door.

    If I were a wordsmith,
    the written word-- my game,
    I’d write sweet poetry--
    that would set man’s heart aflame.

    With a pen full of wonder,
    epiphanies to employ,
    play would be our living art,
    living life would be our joy.

    Were I a star rocker
    with my lightning guitars,
    I’d rock-it to a milky way,
    we’d be rolling with the stars.

    With amps fully cranked,
    and the lead’s all screaming,
    the bases blowing out,
    Man-- would we be steaming....

    Lovely thoughts. We should all live life with such an attitude.

    I echo Terence...wonderfully alive and philosophical as well.

    With a pallet full of color,
    a magic wand for a brush,
    I’d paint a new honor--
    that gives the spine a rush.


    I loved all the verses but this one stands out...lack of honor is one of the bigger things wrong with the world today.

    LOVED IT!! :yay:

    Thanks Nomad, Terence & Joli,

    It would be nice to be able to paint the world the way we want. And I do think we should try. If we don't who will.

    G'day reasonrhymer...
    Ah! This world needs leaders like you portrayed in your poem.
    Must have felt great writing this 'cos it's great reading your poem.
