Original Poem: “The Woodworker”

“The Woodworker”

The second ia a series of poems: the poet as woodworker.  The photo is of a handcrafted sewing box.

                       THE WOODWORKER
Each piece of wood is judged by knowing hand and eye,,
Carefully measured twice before cut once,
Sanded down to a fine finish that delights the touch,
Varnished to protect and enhance the wood’s natural grain,
Assembled piece by piece according to design;
Each joint fitting seamlessly, each hinge hung true.
Until at last it stands complete and whole,
Reflecting the woodworker’s years of experience and pride.

A customized print can be ordered from Fineartamerica.
