Id love to be an artist
With paint brush in my hand
Painting all of natures beauty
Seen in sky and sea and land.

Id begin with a morning sunrise
Using soft and golden hues
Then add a touch of crimson
With grays fading into blues.

Id capture roses kissed with dew
Sparkling in the morning light,
And upon my canvas Id form
The shape of Geese in flight.

Id paint a colorful meadow
As it comes to life in spring,
And a nest of Robins so lifelike
You could almost hear them sing.

Id paint an awesome waterfall
Cascading to a lake below
And far off on the horizon,
Mountain peaks capped with snow.

Id paint mighty ocean waves
And a lighthouse on the shore,
All these things I would paint,
These and so much more.

But since I'm not an artist,
On down life's path Ill trod
Ever in awe of natures beauty,
Painted by the hand of God.
