The vase had to be washed out
To see the inscription in the bottom.
I can only imagine the painstaking
Effort it took an artisan to create
This handcrafted and exquisite
Lettering all with the intent
Of letting me know that when
I peered to the bottom of this
Cylinder, this hand-blown
I would be peering into the finite,
The end. I will have seen
All that there is left to see.
