Chalk the Sidewalk

I’ve got amber and lavender. Lemon yellow and pink. The sidewalk is gleaming. Now here’s what I think. Gonna scribble a monster or portrait a plane. Draw a knight dressed in armor, sketch the country of Spain.

Ooooo – let’s chalk the sidewalk. Can’t wait to hear the neighbors talk of the fabulous figures that flow from my fingers. Ooooo – let’s chalk the sidewalk.

There’s drab and there’s ecru. Eggplant and grape. I could draw out a tiger. Maybe fashion an ape. Something stunning in fuchsia, pretty in iris. Two hearts for my best friends, two lips for a kiss.

Ooooo – let’s chalk the sidewalk. Can’t wait to hear the neighbors talk. Oh the weather is lovely, my drawings divine. I’ve got plenty of concrete and nothing but, nothing but…

Now there’s a big vivid city rising there on the street. A square or a cube taking shape by my feet. With my big bag of chalk I’ll draw from 1st down to Main. Maybe in front of the mayor’s house. What’s he gonna do – complain?!?!

Ooooo – let’s chalk the sidewalk. Can’t wait to hear the neighbors talk. Oh the weather is lovely, my drawings divine. I’ve got plenty of concrete and nothing but, nothing but…time.
