Douglas H. Mc Clintock 1934 (Sarnia, Ontario)
One artist with brush and paint
The other with pen and paper,
The finished product sits on the wall,
The other on a page inside a book.
The painting on the wall will dazzle your eyes,
The written page will stir your emotions.
The painting needs an ornate frame,
The other needs only to speak for itself.
The painting may be worth much money
But the other, no money can buy, can be priceless.
They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,
What you see, is what you get.
The pen is mightier than the sword
And beauty is only skin deep,
So, who is the fairest of them all ?
The painter or poet
One tries to catch your eye
The other will steal your heart,
A painter will use the same texture
But a poet transforms it's reader.
Do whatever you prefer in life
Do your best to be a master craftsman.
A six letter word, CREATE, do what ever you like
But make it an original.
