Mr. Buckley what’s your riddle

Smoke your pipe and rest a little

Catch a fish or play the fiddle

Mr. Buckley what’s your riddle

 

Mr. Buckley what’s your riddle

Smoke your pipe and rest a little

Catch a fish or play the fiddle

Mr. Buckley what’s your riddle

 

Ghosts that haunt Algonquin Park

A century from dawn ‘til dark

Painted lakes complete an arc

Ever burnishing a mark

 

Growing up in northern scenes

Wildflowers, season themes

Some pastoral and serene

Some are places I have been

 

Blowing Up in northern scenes

Jack Pine and season themes

Some pastoral and serene

Some are places I have been

 

And if they have time to speak

Form and colour, brush technique

Pine and Cedar, lakes and creeks

Elitist pricks and artist cliques

 

A Northern River masterpiece

Another great one At The Crease

Six of those and six of these

Ever swirling in the breeze

 

Mr. Buckley what’s your riddle

Smoke your pipe and rest a little

Catch a fish or play the fiddle

Mr. Buckley what’s your riddle
