One piece

Sculpture Winfried Heinrich

You lie when with yourself content,
feeling with the world at peace,
arms and legs are comfortably bent
on a your skin caressing fleece.

This emotion is expressed here in one piece
made of wood and beautifully shaped.
Carved and sanded, then polished with grease
lest not one false bump on it escaped.

By an artist’s hands the wood evolved
from a stem into a human figure
whose proportions painstakingly solved
show which body parts are mostly bigger.
