Shadows in the Bulrushes by Maree  Clarkson

Pass by without seeing,
The innocent held to my bosom.

Hide me, hide me.

Rustling in the wind,
whisper me, whisper me.

Swaying with the rippling water,
Dance me, dance me.

Tall in the shallows,
Reach me, reach me.

Know me when you pass again.
Seek me, seek me.

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
