The Lace Maker

by Karen A. Trettel

The Lace Maker-
With all her lace supplies;
Watch her quick fingers
And her intent eyes.
Creating beauty,
She plies her art;
of creating lasting beauty
To please her heart.

Each piece is so special,
Made with love and care;
Could be a flower, a doily
Or something to wear.
Lovely colors, or pure white,
She strives for perfection
With her fingers in flight.

Now we are all gathered here
With our own styles of lace,
With a smile in our heart
As well as our face.

Let us create and teach
 this lace we share!
Don't bicker, criticize,
Scoff or compare!

Around the world
Lace makers live;
To collect, create,
Study and give.

So let's work together.
On common ground we will stand;
To learn and grow
And give one another a hand.
