IF - strong

IF- strong - EWian

The Illustration Friday word this week was strong. I am very lucky to have a mother that loved poetry. One of the poems she learn me when I was a child was a one called "the strongest man in the world". Loosely translated it would go like this:

The strongest man in the world
The strongest man in the world;
can carry a hippo in his teeth,
and lifting a tram of the rail,
and simultaneously clap his hands.

But set a flower on a small straw,
and colour the vast sky blue,
and give little Anne a milk tooth,
that can he not, the strongest man!

Medium used: Pencil and Yanka watercolours.
