The Custom Carver

It was just a few short years ago
when i picked up my first knife
Just a magic moment in a day
that  forever changed my life.
that day a woodcarver I became
and I wore my chips with pride
and I learned everything I could
left no technique untried.
I called myself a custom carver
and built my own web site
spent the next few years carving
staying up very late each night.
I heard that one must find a niche
and believe me, I have tried
I still carve almost anything
whatever my customers decide.
While I like to carve my own designs
I do not wish to starve
so I create what others want
At least I get to carve.
