Calligraphy--By George L. Ellison--England


It takes a special talent and
Many years to perfect
Written documents in many fonts
With such precise effect
Artistic and so long lasting
Such pure creative script
A craft passed down since ancient times
Scholarly ancient text that’s so beautiful and sublime

    Lovely write on calligraphy. I, too, appreciate its exquisite beauty, George.

    1. Thank You Jack for reading my poem I am pleased you liked it, the poem is in the "Whispers Style" set for the stylists on the Alliance website and I thought it would be a good addition to Karen's site also!

  2. What a wonderful poem; I can picture some of the ancient books with their beautiful calligraphy and I have many friends who add calligraphy to home made cards. I like this one very much. Pam
