MY GRANDFATHER’S CLOCK
Grandfather’s clock was too tall for the shelf
So it stood 90 years on the floor.
It was taller by half than the old man himself
And it weighed not a pennyweight more.
was bought in the morn of the day he was born
And was always his treasure and pride.
But it stopped---short! ---never to go again---
When the old man died!
Techniques: Hand dyed and hand painted fabric by the artist, depicting the gears and other clockworks inside the old clock, pieced and fused to give an abstract view of the inner work
