Two birds flying high, A Chinese vessel, sailing by. A bridge with three men, sometimes four, A willow tree, hanging o'er. A Chinese temple, there it stands, Built upon the river sands. An apple tree, with apples on, A crooked fence to end my song. (Author Unknown) There are several translations and this is my favorite poem of the Willow Pattern. Here I have made a small china round from a broken dinner plate edge. 1" round, (25m) includes a 16-18" adjustable black satin cord with lobster clasp closure.
