Normal Rockwell



Rockwell was my rock The reason I became A graphic designer Seeking fortune & fame Achieved my portion Of the fortune part And fame, at least locally Graphics was my art Long before computers I will king of the hill Even after, my design skills Were valued still Worked on the art table Longer than most Wasn't sent out to pasture Till later, I can boast I still miss the challenge That faced me each day A big part still longs To revisit yesterday Surely at my happiest While practicing my art That pleased my clients 'Twas the best part Receiving recognition I sorrily still miss Coz I know I'm still able Now I just reminisce Norman Rockwell was my rock! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon loves Norman Rockwell... He saw his painting of Santa and is determined to sit on Santa's lap... HAH!... The chair would break and Norman Rockwell would have to paint Santa being taken away on a stretcher... LOL... But seriously, What do I feed a ghost? Norman likes it here! When Dragon was naughty the witch helped him with a seance and brought Old Norman back... He has Dragons paints and is now painting on the walls... I guess it could be worse... Dragon could be painting!... LOL
