Beneath the maple tree

Beneath the maple tree

Inspired by that song in 1776 entitled, "Mama look sharp." It's a fantastic, beautiful song. Just heart wrenching....the lyrics are..oh..

Momma, hey momma
Come looking for me
I'm here in the meadow
By the red maple tree
Momma, hey momma
Look sharp
Here I'll be
Hey, hey momma, look sharp
Them soldiers they fired
Oh ma did we run
But when we turn around
The battle begun
Then I went under
Oh ma, am I done
Hey, hey momma, look sharp
My eyes are wide open
My face to the sky
Is that you I'm hearing
In the tall grass near by?
Momma come and find me
Before I do die!
Hey, hey momma look sharp
I'll close your eyes, my Billy
Them eyes that can not see
And I'll bury you, my Billy
Beneath the maple tree
And never again
Will you whisper to me
Hey, hey, oh momma, look sharp

Also, credit to the great painter whom I adore, Ed Sandoval, for inspiration, a master at colorful vibrant landscapes. He's one of a kind.

I hope you like it. :D

KerushiI wonder why I never saw this before...1776 is like my favourite movie.
Your picture is so beautiful, just like the song. The colors and compostion are amazing! A definite add to faves.
I will probably think of this picture every time I watch 1776 now. Which is a lot, trust me. :)

DogssThank you. ^_^ One of my all time favorites, that song.

I do belive that is either a mistake, or perhaps some of the sunlight I added. :D

cptShortThat's such a sad song. :( The picture goes with it really well, though.

What's the yellow line through the grass by the roots of the tree?
