An Artist's Eye




Edward Wadsworth

SIMPLY SNICKERS

AN ARTIST'S EYE

It takes an artist's eye
To discover it.....
The beauty in the practical.
The sheen,
The curves,
The shadows and reflections.
*
These are not only the propellers
Of 1940,
The necessary adjunts to a mechanical and menacing
War.
They are shapes, contours, patterns,
Placed with perspective
And viewed
With a sympathetic eye.
*
Ours is a different age.
It is not combat,
Up where the winds blow,
That terrifies us.
It is the energy,
Up where the winds blow,
That gives us hope.
*
Let us try to blend necessity with art.
Already there are magnificent examples
Of what is possible.
*














Let us not say
'Necessity is the Mother of Invention'.
Rather let us say
'Necessity is the Mother of Beauty.'
*

Yes a great message in verse and in the intriguing images that are now gracing our sky lines, hills and dales.
