Favorite Quote:
I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.
Vincent Van Gogh

In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing.
Vincent Van Gogh


Come down to the brook, brook, brook.
Come down and have a look, look, look.
If you want, you can bring a book, book, book,
To spin a tale on your way.

Listen to the brook as it trips, trips, trips
Over the stones that it hits, hits, hits.
Enjoy your time as you sit, sit, sit
Next to the babbling brook.

Watch every bird and bee
Fly on by cheerfully.
As cars zoom by,
We'll put that out of our mind
To enjoy the lovely day.

The bare tree looks so tall
In the season of Fall.
But, oh, the wonder of things
During a beautiful Spring.

The green grass starts to grow, grow, grow.
The sun melts away the snow, snow snow,
Revealing the things we can know, know, know,
If we just looked around.

Let's find a way, way, way to
Forget of clouds so gray, gray, gray.
Let's go out and stay all day
By the babbling brook.


The author's comments:
I was out on a walk one day when the idea for this poem came to me. It was just too lovely of a day not to write a poem about. I had a notebook and pencil with me, so I decided to stop by a nearby brook and write this poem. I hope you enjoy it. :)
