Paint A Picture

Paint A Picture


Paint me a picture of green

With some tall grasses and big pine trees

Have it be a spring time day

With winter gone far away


Paint the sky a shade of blue

In the warm afternoon

With a kite flying high

Witnessed by those far and wide


Include the rainbow’s colors there

With pastels painted everywhere

With a painted bunting too

He yellow, red, green and blue


Show an old barn still good

There with many seasons withstood

And some square bales of hay

In the loft for a colder day


And show some crows about the place

Busy searching every space

For a cricket or a frog

Under a old fallen log


In general paint the family farm

As if the kids still knew its charm

Playing outside here and there

Growing up in fresh clean air

          I could see every image - I grew up in fresh country air and was always out in it. Best way to grow up - you're right....
