Gainsborough painted a lady
Van Gogh a sunflower of two
Constable painted a haywain
His sons were painters too.

Palmer etched a sheepfold
Be it open or closed
He also etched the shepherd
Having a midday doze.

Crome’s study of trees
Redgrave’s sweet summer time
Turner painted landscapes
Palmer’s Skylark’s sublime.

Collier did paintings of Sussex
Lewis a Herefordshire scene
Mallais a Kentish landscape
Abbutt’s Devon serene.

With paint and canvas pen and ink
These great artists make us think
Of summer days and lazy nights
And mother nature’s wondrous sights
