APAD 15: The Chair Farmer

 

The Chair Farmer

(Gavin Munro)

Gavin used to make chairs in the city:

big chairs

medium chairs and

teeny-tiny chairs

He crafted them

in a shed behind his house

 

It took a long time for the tree to grow

it took a long time for the wood to season

it took a long time for Gavin to work his magic

it took a long time to grow a chair

 

Now Gavin makes chairs in the country

They take a long time to grow

so he shapes them as they grow

bending arms, shaping legs

building backs

strengthening seats.

 

Gavin farms chairs.
