No Time

watercolour and ink

The stars have the night

To delight

Beauty has the Earth

To give birth

And birds have the sky

just to fly

And fish have the sea

Just to be

But I have no time

Just to rhyme

And I wonder why

With a sigh

watercolour and ink

Awesome Nick! I loved a lot.

Pietro said...

Very fine, clear watercolours.
Interesting how the thoughts in the poem follow one another; I like the rhymes too.

Rosy said...

The poem is cute in away for I myself often wonder how I even manage to find time with the so many things at hand.

The art is also very wonderful too.

Oh just to let you know you might be next in line that is a cartoon of you.

Rhyme needs time, and a rhythmic mood..and the world takes out that mood from me. :)

But you rhyme so well, Nick
and lovely art too :)

Very nice ink and watercolour drawings. You have a delicate touch.

These are very much like some of the old prints I got in Japan a long time ago. Actually they are not separate prints but bound in a small book. I learned after I bought it that it is a kind of erotic book for Japanese.

Thanks for taking a look at my house finch in my birds blog.
