AN ARTIST’S WISH
Oh, to paint the joyous beauty of this world
In all its brilliant hues and subtle tones –
From the tiniest, most delicate flower
To the loftiest, most majestic mountain.
Capture the dawn’s grandeur and evening’s glory;
The ultramarine of the deep, placid sea;
The lush, crimson velvet of rose petals and lips;
The rich indigo of a cold winter night;
The flaxen yellow of sun-ripened wheat fields;
The cobalt blue of a cloudless summer sky;
The luxuriant green of moss and forests;
The pristine white of glittering, moon-lit snow;
The cadmium yellow of the blazing sun –
To capture this beauty and share it with the world.
