|Bamboo painting by Kuan Daosheng|
Take a lump of clay
Wet it, pat it,
Make a statue of you
And make a statue of me.
Then shatter them, clatter them,
Add some water
And break them and mould them
Into a statue of you
And a statue of me.
Then in mine there are bits of you
And in yours there are bits of me
Nothing ever shall keep us apart.
Thank you to my friend Elizabeth for making me aware of this beautiful poem.
