In woodwork’s sacred hall, where craftsmen dwell. They find a joint so strong, they all can tell, a mortise and tenon, A bond so tight, it’s forever true.
With precision and care, they carve and chisel. A marriage of wood, a perfect fit.
The mortise’s hole, so straight and true Awaiting the tenon, to pass on through
The tenon’s end, so smooth and square Fitting snugly, with nary a hair, A joint so tight, it’s hard to believe, A mark of skill, for all to see.
With mallet’s strike and glue’s embrace. The joint is formed, a lasting place. For beams and frames to stand so tall. A joint so true, it won’t ever fall
So raise a glass, to the mortise and tenon. A joint so strong, it will never weaken. In woodwork’s realm, it reigns supreme. A mark of excellence, for all to dream.
