You do not need a pearly-white canvas

to create a work of art,


for art is simply an embodiment

of the knowledge one imparts.


You may have but a scrap of lined paper,

or a box of old pastels--


this is enough, for the tools don’t matter;

it's whether the art excels.


The blue lines on your scrap of paper

are flat earth for you to sculpt,


enchanting landscapes and scenery

are to emerge as a result.


Your old pastels are your handy tools

with which you are hew


a mythical sculpture that’s one of a kind,

original and new.


So, whether you’re planning to compose a song,

carve an image on wood,


decorate a mantel, sew a dress,

or do anything else you could,


before you do, just remember:

you don’t need tools to make art.


You only need a creative boost

that comes straight from the heart.
