for cindy

hey cindy! thanks for making me a weeeeeeeeeener! here is the poem i want you to use to inspire my scheren.... thing.

Another Sarah for Christopher Smart
by anne porter

When winter was half over
God sent three angels to the apple-tree
Who said to her
"Be glad, you little rack
Of empty sticks,
Because you have been chosen.

In May you will become
A wave of living sweetness
A nation of white petals
A dynatsy of apples."

thank you! and did you notice i made your name a link - just like you showed me - double thanks!

glad you like! i'm sure the scherenshnitte will be equally beautiful! i've left your flower painting on the basement door - it makes it more homey i think.
