colors

 

 

 

 

I wanted to paint the town red

I painted it purple instead

I wanted to change the world

Other plans unfurled.

 

I hoped to pan some gold

Now I am painting bold

 

The colors run and flow

I’m quick—I don’t like slow.

 

A coral reef under the sea

Transparent colors transparent me.

 

I still have time to paint the town red

And pan some gold.

 

Maybe I’ll do it today

Tomorrow will still be o.k.
