Kinds of Lines!

Lyrics

Lines are all around you and me
LONG or SHORT, THICK or THIN they’ll be
CURVY, WAVY, BROKEN, FANCY, FREE!
Look around how many can you see?

A HORIZONTAL line you should know
From left to right or right to left it goes
It seems calm and soothing and really slow
A HORIZONTAL line you should know

A VERTICAL line you should know
Up and down or down and up it goes
Standing proud and strong and really stable
A VERTICAL line you should know

Lines are all around you and me
LONG or SHORT, THICK or THIN they’ll be
CURVY, WAVY, BROKEN, FANCY, FREE!
Look around how many can you see?

A DIAGONAL line you should know
It goes across, from low to high or high to low
It has action it has movement; it is on the go!
A DIAGONAL line you should know

Yeah there’s many other lines you can know
Like GEOMETRIC, ORGANIC, and GESTURAL
Or ZIGZAGS and SPIRALS that grow and grow
Oh there’s many other lines you can know.

Lines are all around you and me
LONG or SHORT, THICK or THIN they’ll be
CURVY, WAVY, BROKEN, FANCY, FREE!
Look around how many can you see?
