A Painting is Worth a Thousand Words

A Painting is worth a Thousand Words

By David Smith April 15, 2009


Painters are lazy writers; a thousand words they brush;

Paint a scene so vividly without a whisper or quiet hush.

The scene in massive colour; the pallet stained galore;

To let emotions trickle as tears fall to the floor.

A painting’s worth a thousand words; and it hits home so hard.

Where emotion takes us back to where life was scarred.

Painters are lazy writers, they picture what is felt.

Looking at a masterpiece a heart can boil or melt.

O the talented artist who can let emotion run;

And capture it on canvas for all the viewers’ fun.
