Ode to Paper
By Maria Nerius
Paper: n. compressed matted vegetable substance in thin flexible sheet form being the precipitate of a fibrous pulp in water; a supply a rubberstamper can never have too much of
I am an addict that's for sure,
But, my love for paper
Is deep, sincere and pure.
Paper, Paper, Paper.
My stash is ever growing.
Hear me triumphantly shout,
"Don't throw that paper out!"
Cloud White, Sunflower Yellow,
Ocean Blue or Peacock Green
Eggplant Purple or Chocolate Brown
Candy Apple Red or Tangerine.
Just a scrap or a whole big sheet
Brings me to my stamping feet.
It's a canvas on which to create.
I never turn away. I'm never late.
Hand over quilling strips,
Don't forget the vellum
Add some Washi and I'll be happy
As I sigh over linen, so crisp and bouncy.
Imagination thrives in me,
I'm a busy as a bee.
Creativity never fails with paper
Do you understand my paper glee?
Paper, Paper, Paper
Such a pulpy bliss,
To stamp my heart out during any crisis.
