The Artist

 

Studying his element

The artist begins his work

Looking for something

That looks like something

He's seen before

He searches his mind

Arranges his thoughts

And poises his hand

Whether pencil or pen

Chisel or torch

He is holding

He begins his creation

With love and care

And the skill of years

He does what no other can do

He creates a part of himself
