I have an idea

big and profound,

to build me a ship

to fly world around.

I'll strum my guitar

and patter* my drum,

put tap in their feet

and snap in their thumb.

*patter- make rapid taps

I'll take swatches* of red

and swatches* of sweet;

I'll paint big smiles

on the people I meet.

Recent Review By One Of Our Reviewers

I really love your illustration for "I'll strum my guitar..."!

It is all wonderful!

I love the simple glossary at the end and the link to Artists for a Better World.  I'll tell Louis about the poetry contest...I even have one of my own.

Grand work.

The Better World Project

Books Make Booms Custom book- The Quest We Share at an Artists For A Better World event in Los Angeles, California.

Artists are civilization builders and  visionaries.  Without artists the world would be a drab and dismal place.  Can you imagine a civilization without music, without poetry or without books?  That would be no civilization at all.  The strength of artists can be found in their ability to build and maintain a flourishing better world project.

The Quest We Share authors Mary and Richard Rensberry invite you and your artist friends to become members of Artists For A Better World.
