I speak of Origami when

I think of craft enchanting

The art of paper folding is

A thing I find so daunting!

An artform that for centuries

Has dazzled and confounded

Makes objects of complexity

From folds and pleats compounded

I bow to all the skill it takes

It’s like a magic act

A slip of paper deftly crimped

Yet wholly left intact!

I know not what the mind must do

How one prepares and plans

For every crease and tuck and turn

Fantastic sleight of hand

It takes the patience of a saint

With awesome spatial ability

To coax form from a formless plane

What massive mental agility

It’s like a form of alchemy

How artisans will labour

A conjuring extraordinaire

From humble piece of paper!
