My canvas speaks
It might have overheard me
Or seen my pensive mood
Perhaps it thought I may neglect it

I have no paint
No brushes
Not even pencil colours
Or crayons

I wish I had some;
Yellow, blue, and red paint
The primary colours
That can make some mixing colours magic

Oh, yes!
At least some white and black
Yah, for tint and shades
I think it could be just fine

Oh, my canvas speaks
“Paint me in black and white, I will look just fine”
I look at my pencil, smiling
So, this can work wonders too.
