Sometimes I Wonder! - Poem by Denis Martindale

When I observe God's creatures here,
How artists pick and choose,
The animals they hold most dear,
The scenery they use...
Well, I reflect on those not shared,
The less adorable,
You see none of these artists cared,
Beyond the beautiful...

And yet, some artists still omit
The classic creatures here,
Because they just don't care one bit
On how these could appear...
I'd rather be a genius,
An artist truly blessed,
To share what God has shared with us,
Not just the very best...

I would be doing all I could,
Beyond cute dogs and cats,
Beyond the horse that nobly stood,
The parrot known for chats...
If I could paint a dolphin's smile,
That would be out of sight!
As long as I could paint with style,
Each morning, noon and night!
