Button Art

An old woman left it at the thrift store;
To a young girl, it was so much more

It wouldn't stay sewn on, 
there is a much better use for this button

Those young eyes don't see the way others do,
This is inspiration  just waiting for a muse 

A Button not meant for a blouse or skirt,
Stringing until her fingers hurt

The beads align to perfection, 
Bringing to life her imagination 

One of a kind bracelet can't be beat
On her wrist, the art is now complete
