Trial and Error

The Bessemer furnace eats its fill
It melts and then disgorges its kill
Forged as in the fires of hell 
The hard cool steel we know so well

Sharp yet malleable hammered out true
To build with strength and stainless too
Two edged we find its strength may be
Yet free from impurities it is we see

To reach this stage of true cool steel
Air pumped in the burning flames must feel
Through trial and error they struggle to perfect
To reach the perfection they adjust and correct.

    We all learn by different ways. But only if we learn then we may ever improve. Great one, Mandy. Love it!

    This poem makes me ponder..cos with trial and error we learn..we try to reach for perfection with the help of correction..but i guess perfection is never fetched.Glad i stopped by

    The impurities of the creation can come in many forms Mandy, yet your poetry continues to inspire. and just gets better and better... love this.. certainly not from a heart of steel, but maybe gold?
