"Grey Goose"

"Grey Goose"  original acrylic painting, framed  50" x 50"  (c) Wm Barth Osmundsen

The 'Grey Goose'was created in response to the environmental clean-up of the Elizabeth River.


In the words of the late CBS commentator Charles Kuralt

 who was a friend to the river

"When the wetlands really come back,


  When the forests return to the shore. When healthy fish, clams and oysters find a home

in the Southern reaches of the river again,

 And the sun rises off the Atlantic in the morning to reflect itself

in the serene pure waters of the Elizabeth River,

 Our children and grandchildren

will know that we had them in mind.

Ode to the Grey Goose

The Grey Goose flew over the water

with a silver chalice in his beak.

He knew he was the inspiration

For a drink served both cold and neat.


The Grey Goose honks victorious.

His fame spread meritorious.

From Canada to Southern climes

He migrates to survive.


Oh where would the Martini be

if he hadn't flown bye.

Maybe with ole James Bond

in Scotland or about to die.


Only with fortitude did

the Grey Goose make plain

that the Martini has won.

Lording to everyone's acclaim.


The Grey Goose flies over the wetlands,endangered by the years.

So lets drink to Grey Goose

with laughter and with tears.


The Grey Goose flew over the water

with a silver chalice in his beak.

He knew he was the inspiration

for a drink served both cold and neat.
