Yet of green ink no sign is seen.
Transparent blue, of course is used,
To shift us into other hues.
|Daisies, reduction linocut, Step 6|
A good result I do confess,
Yet more must roll before we rest.
Another pass with see-through blue,
Creates a greener green, 'tis true.
|Daisies, reduction linocut, Step 7|
But wait! It is not quite enough,
This print's still diamond in the rough.
Transparent blue again applied,
It's taking us on quite a ride.
|Daisies, reduction linocut, Step 8|
A day or two we must now wait,
For ink to dry and plans create.
(*With apologies to real poets, who will no doubt point out that while this may be an ode thematically, structurally it's more like couplets. And not very good ones at that.)
