Obituary of Thomas Belanger

Carpenter's Soul © Michael C. Belanger 1999 No beast in me you'll find I fear I have only a carpenter's soul Hands work worn, scarred in nicks and cuts and slivers. The patient hands of mastery, extracting from the plank, the finished piece worked smooth, polished clean. The eye for truth and true, the measure of full square and perfect aspect. Hair touched white with dust and wisdom, of pine and oak and maple, The gentle persuasion of manner that induces beauty from the wood, as a lover's touch induces the trembling heart. No, in me you'll find the craftsman, passion sure, but focused so upon the obligation to delivery beauty, from the work that obsesses. Wringing pleasure from each simple grain revealed…..

Belanger, Thomas Patrick
