Turning exchange poem

Chris K in MD
>Oh where or where is my exchange turning?
Oh where of where can it be?

The only thing I know for sure is
it was originally part of a tree

Spindle, face work, segmented, or hollow form
has it been delayed in a storm?

I cant wait any longer, the pictures of beautiful turnings
are making me green with envy
Isnt there someone who is making a piece just for me?

My turning was sent back in December
I was early for the first time I can remember

Not so paitently I continue to wait
After all its not yet the end date

Please hurry Mr Post man, deliver it fast
I dont know how much longer I'll last

Oh no maybe they sent it parcel post!
Regardless I send many thanks to David Propst
