Art Beads, O Art Beads How Do I love thee?
(a tribute to art bead artists everywhere with a nod to Elizabeth Barrett Browning)
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee for thy color and pattern and light
My soul longs to touch you, you make me feel alright
For the one of a kind uniqueness you make my heart bleed
I love thee to the level of a crack addict’s need
You tempt me with your beauty, you make my mailbox burst
I love thee freely, though my husband thinks I be curs’d
I love thee purely, your sales drive me to act like a loon
I love thee with a passion that makes grown women swoon
In my earliest designs, there was nary an art
Art beads, O art beads, you’ve opened my heart
To a world of mini-masterpieces – I love thee with desire
Though I would rather hoard you, I find it difficult to part
I shall but love thee better when I get inspired.
