George is a distant young relation of mine who lives in England.
The work of George!
Though just in the early stages
But in this way started many careers
Of artists down the ages.
What an imagination!
His head is in the stars,
All mixed in with technology
Aeroplanes and cars.
I love the little tubby chap
Up there in outer space
And the people in the lift,
Clearly their special place.
The love-heart hanging in the sky
Is a sentimental touch.
All in all a work of art
That I like very much.
Just look what you could do with sand if you tried hard enough!
Sand is easily available and very useful stuff.
You, too, could build a statue of life beneath the sea,
With Neptune looking regal as a member of royalty.
All it takes is a lot of skill and a lot of patience too,
If you have both these attributes the artist could be you.
Look at all the debris lying beneath the waves,
All the flotsam of the years in dark and soggy caves,
There lies a till with money spilling out upon the sand
Looking rather out of place so very far from land.
The little fish swim in and out among the tangled sails,
Watching with tiny fishy eyes and waving fishy tails.
If I tried my hand at this I'd end end up with a pile
Of rather shapeless soggy sand and folk would tend to smile.
But you, yes you, are artistic and made of sterner stuff,
I'm sure you could create this easily enough!
