My 1st experience with basswood
Posted On 05/09/2008 00:14:37 by MissVic

   BULLY IN THE BLOCK

 

 

 

 

Cottonwood bark, a most social wood,

 

 

It beckons "Please come carve me,

 

 

For I hold within a secret gift

 

 

Your heart and knife can carve free."

 

 

 

While bully basswood, just a plain, hard block

 

 

Makes a beginner want to quit.

 

 

It challenges in its' harder wood way

 

 

"Ya wanna make somethin’ of it?"

 

 

 

Where cottonwood enjoys release

 

 

Of the treasure hidden within,

 

 

Basswood fights me all the way,

 

 

Leaving blisters as proof on my skin.

 

 

 

But a carver I intend to be,

 

 

So I'll fight the bully bass.

 

 

I'll take its' challenge.

 

 

I'll change its' shape.

 

 

Well........

 

 

At least for this one class!
