Summer Street Warehouse
To match the sky all clear and blue
and mix the colors till they're true
I squeeze the paint from tiny tubes
and on my palette goes the hue.
Earnestly beginning mixing
palette knife the color fixing
soon a building comes in focus
it's fun work, not hocus pocus.
The city is so bright and fair
a simple warehouse clean and bare
shows off in quiet elegance
it's beauty for the ages hence.
A shadow here, a highlight there,
a vision that I want to share
and so one sees what I have done
the work has now become the fun.
I took artistic license, sure...
The colors? not exactly pure,
but as a whole the painting works
just call it an artistic perk.
