My Purple Heart

She’s gorgeous, hardwood, radiant and true
Her brilliance is matchless, her strength secure
She resonates natural beauty with contours and color
She’s purple heart, purple heart to the core

Not always easy to navigate, her grains are tough and resilient
Under stress and strain, she stands the test of time
Cedar, oak, mahogany, no other wood can compare
She’s purple heart, purple heart to the core

She produces a finished product that is worth it’s weight in gold
Cutting, planing, and sanding only accentuate and validate her good stock
Full of resolve, spine and shape
She’s purple heart, purple heart to the core

She’s the diva of all woods,
She demands her own terms, calls her own pay, and takes only top dollar
She’s worth every penny
She’s purple heart, my purple heart, purple heart to the core
