One of my students sent me this poem. She’s no idea who wrote it or who gave
it to her, but we thought everyone would enjoy it! Best wishes to all, Lidia
The Tension Square
I had a sudden brainwave, on how to earn a packet.
I sat down with pen and paper and designed a lovely jacket.
I started with a tension square, the first seemed short and fat.
My second one was long and thin so I’d had enough of that.
I decided not to bother with a tension square at all.
I carried on regardless, throwing caution to the wall.
Now, my creation’s finished, but I don’t know what to do.
I’m looking for a customer five stone and eight feet two.
So let this be a warning, have patience and take care.
When you are in creative mood, remember the tension square!
