"Unburdened" - 24" x 32" oil by Greg Newbold
It must be nice to be a sheep
With nothing to do but graze and sleep.
But when it's time the wool to shear,
That poor old sheep bleats, "Oh, dear!"
It is springtime, shearing time, and National Poetry Month. What better way to celebrate than with this great little poem by Langston Hughes, a truly talented American poet!
