The Artist's Work - Poem by Francis Duggan
The crimson rosellas on her canvas look so life like and real
This woman for things natural she surely has the feel
Her amazing sense of colours a genius at her trade
Great artists like great writers are born and not made.
My expertise on art is limited but of her work I like what I see
The rosellas on her canvas do seem so real to me
The gum tree they are perched upon so life like I like her sort of art
The woman has an artist's soul and she paints from the heart
She is a Nature artist and of her it can be said
That she surely is a naturalist about her I have read
An articles in a newspaper of how each day she spends hours
Sketching the wildborn and the natural things wildlife and trees and flowers.
Like I say on art I'm not an expert but allow me my point of view
And I will give her credit since credit she is due
Her great rosella canvas I'd really love to buy
But I don't have the money since money poor am I.
I feel the rosellas from her canvas seem ready to fly away
They are so very life like I could stand here all day
And gaze upon the canvas hanging on the gallery wall
A memory to cherish and a memory to recall.
