Included in your crowded CV list:
candle-maker, auditor, and catechist;
by Dutch canals you wooed your beau,
setting her heart and mind aglow.
Then lone-seated, under willows etched,
slowly your sharp knife blade sketched
lovers initials on a branch, sharp incisions
birthed more than mere lover’s vision.
Betrothal present then parchment-wrapped,
cyphers sang in secret, cellulose sap
oozed out from peeled willow wood,
craftsman claimed such imprint good.
Later printed bible, salvation story told,
broke asunder all spiritual strangleholds:
people set free from sin and serf slavery,
freedom preached with godly bravery.
