Artist's Description

OUR COLOURFUL HOMES

We piled aboard the ferry one day
And headed toward Giverny.
To visit Monet’s garden
Was the purpose of our journey.

Now none of us were artists
And one was colour blind
So what we’d hoped to accomplish
Was sort of undefined.

But being easy going
And friends for ever so long
When one suggested that we go
The rest just went along.

And thus at our arrival
you can imagine our surprise
when we stepped into his garden
the sight that met out eyes.

Colour and light were everywhere,
Lilies in the pond.
And a room of his great works
In a building just beyond.

We decided then and there
How we’d want our group of tombs
In the place we’d already chosen
So our friendships could resume.

Drab stones now not for us
For really, what could be duller!
No, we decided our new digs
Would be a splash of Monet colour.

That was very long ago
By now we each are here
But don’t the number of visitors
Grow more and more each year!

They think that famous artists
Must surely here do rest
But we’re just a group of friends
Who happened to be well dressed.
