CCEE1713 Lyrics/Van Gogh

Vincent
Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land
Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They did not listen, They did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now
Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand
These are the lyrics of an old favorite song Lynn asked us to use for inspiration...........Today is Vincent Van Gogh's 164th birthday.

I kept the colors blue and gray, and was inspired by the line ...
"Sketch the trees and the daffodils"
