The Craft

By Scott Bailey 2017

Hands caressing wood
Tracing the grain
Or moulding clay
The release secret shapes
Or shearing marble
Into silken shapes
Or stroking the page
To paint magic words
Or brushing the canvas
Revealing world of dancing light
No automation
No factory
No robot
No tool
Will replace the love
In the craft
