Carpenter Poem (I know it is not a wood product)

Back in high school I wrote this poem about my grandfather. He recently passed away (7/23/15 )and was an inspiration in my life. He taught me many things and how to work with wood. He also restored the Model A Wagon that is shown here. I miss him very much but I wanted to share. He was a cabinetmaker, teacher and extremely talented woodworker.

Perhaps you could move this to a blog and retype the poem so we could all read it. (It’s not easy to read as a photo on some of our computers for us old codgers.) We enjoy reading tributes from appreciative woodworkers about their mentors.
