When Earth's Last Picture Is Painted

Rating: 2.8
When Earth's last picture is painted
And the tubes are twisted and dried
When the oldest colors have faded
And the youngest critic has died
We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it
Lie down for an aeon or two
'Till the Master of all good workmen
Shall put us to work anew
And those that were good shall be happy
They'll sit in a golden chair
They'll splash at a ten league canvas

I had to memorize this poem in the 4th grade. I am 70 years old and can still recite it. It has always been my favorite poem.
