The camera is an artist’s single eye
Which captures in its view a scene of worth.
No value may it hold for passers-by
But the photographer sees idea’s birth.
And next, transfers from film, the retina
Where the image is implanted firm,
Straight to paper; light will give it a
Peculiar trait—an image it will turn.
What joy to find potential in the sights
That to another symbolize some thing
Altogether diff’rent! Bring to light
The gift the Creator is bestowing:
Art’s ability is such a gauge
Allows to us a glimpse of His image.
