Van Gogh Wheat-Rising-Sun


Magpie tales #72


Yellow my favorite color

Van Gogh favorite artist

To have been born with his eyes

His ability to catch the moment

In an assemblage of colors

Yellow, orange, red, green, blue

Considered the world’s

Greatest colorist

Each day difficult

To desire to the point of drool

Turning himself wrong side out

It is this desire he made visable

And gives to us as a gift

He enables us to see

Years after his death

Still fresh though often copied

A master
