Quilts

Could you imagine a more clever object?
Warms the body, ignites the mind.
Brings two people together for
The essentials of nature,
Puts them to bed one day at a time.
The art of the heart and design of the mind.
Given as gifts since the animal hide,
Warms the body, ignites the mind.
A child sleeps under mother's creation.
Together forever, past and present sewn in relation.
The art of the heart and design of the mind.
Softer and drier than a baby's bottom,
Put togehter with your hands of time.
Could you imagine a more clever object?
The art of the heart and design of the mind.
Reach down as far as you can find,
To pull some magic out for your next design.
Just when you think that it's hopeless, once again
Your vision comes and it's dancing with the wind.
The art of the heart and design of the mind.

Paul Bonesteel, 1994
