Our Home

I don't know if you remember when they made pictures out of wood where each intricate piece had to fit like in a jigsaw puzzle. This is one on my wall I happen to enjoy looking at. Different textures/designs of wood had to be cut out to create this piece.It's a peaceful scene
One wishes one could enter this world just to see what it would be like in real life.
I do not know who made this piece.

Let us not be so bold as to laugh and envy

Let us not snivel, nor drink of blood

Let us not conquer, not be conquered

For this is beneath any chivalrous romp

Let us dream of ideals and utopia

Let us plan for more generous days

Let our nights pass in deep, un stung memories

Of sweet tales that our kinsmen have lived and passed

Let us not sit and be silent

Let us not weep in remorse

Let us always stand tall and joyous

Waiting for night fall’s repose

The white snowy peaks of our mountains

Reflect the halo s of all of our souls

As we wait for God, here, to notice

That our home is the best in the world.

How beautiful and are quite the poet!
I do not remember art pieces made of wood but I can certainly appreciate the intricacy and talent behind such an art form, it is lovely and warm.
You always have the loveliest pieces of art!
Have a lovely evening A Lady's Life, cheers!

What a beautiful picture and facinating because it's made of wood. I love wood it's so warm and tactile. :)

Kimmy - your are a most generous and kind person. Thanks for the comment:)

Akelamalu - I agree Wood is warm and a picture like this shows exactly how many different kind of trees we do have because of the nature of the wood fibers or wood grain. To be able to cut them out this way is indeed not an easy feat which makes it even more splendid.:)

very pretty... i remember seeing and admiring art like this in some homes here, mainly in the past

Juliana - I haven't seen too many of such art pieces and its too bad because I think like Holland with its wooden shoes, this art could become a symbol of our North American Heritage.

I really like the looks of this piece. The wood gives it a warmth that is very appealing.

That's a long time ago I saw a "wood puzzle" like this. Also like the poem - gives me some things to think about!
