Folding Fan

The gentle stroke of the brush

Slides across the crisp paper.

Flowing lines and flowering vine

Dance elegantly across the fan.

Let it dry and then crease in the pleats.

Softly coat the edge in gold to let it shine.

Striking dark wood attached to the ends,

Then fasten a small tassel to the heel.

Now watch it flit and fly like a butterfly.
