Artists All by, Nancy Julien Kopp
Painting with oils,
watercolors brushed across paper,
clay molded by loving hands,
marble chiseled to exquisite form.
Artists ply their trade
by the golden light of day,
by the velvet depths of night
with passion and joy.
One more artist joins the ranks.
The writer brushes words over paper,
molds a story bit by glittering bit,
chisels a novel to survive the ages.
Life stories are gathered
from country roads to city streets,
written from the depths of a heart
bursting with intensity and rapture.
Artists all, masters of creation,
be they painters, sculptors or writers,
leaving footprints on canvas, marble and paper--
heartfelt tributes embraced by mankind.
