" Today I cut, slash, dig, and smash

  though it does not make a sound.

  Push, pull, lash, and weave it around

  to keep the world out.

  I blindly walk through it,

  those that see, scatter and flee.

  I live above it, but I cannot deny

  I came from it long before birth.

  Yet I claim it as my own.

  Today I consume it, 

  tomorrow it me. "

   Made with natural material (birch bark, tree limbs,

   leaves, stone, etc...) collected from one square acre, 

   twine, and tools carried in.
