Favorite Quote:
Don't throw effort at foolishness

Once, twice, and then a third
He swings his ax without a word
over this year he prepares for this time
so here i wrote him this little rhyme
a man in the woods without any fear
his whole body hurts but he sheds not a tear
with ax in hand he uses his might
on an old hickory stump that puts up a fight
the wind will blow down his icy chilled back
but there's his chopped wood all in a stack
"the winters are cold" he thinks to himself
"but there"s wood in my fire, and food on my self"

If you have never been there its hard to understand, the power in the ax the bite of the wind
