2. Inventor by Emily Rockarts

 

The inventor dreamt of wondrous flying machines

Drawing sketches of the things that he found in his dreams

Painting people from their veins to their coy little smiles

Sculpting people out of clay in their various styles

 

Mathematics and the beauty of all that makes sense

Scientific facts and figures to bring to defence

Mapping starlight, wondering what outer space is made of

Building churches to be worthy of heaven above

 

Creating things that didn’t exist

Out of nothing is why we persist

Moving forward and float with the dance

Strike a balance between reason and romance

Reason and romance

 

The inventor dreamt of wondrous flying machines

Drawing sketches of the things that he found in his dreams
