Knitting needles

Knitting is so fitting
on a dreary day
when life seems soggy
and bids sleep, not play.

Knitting is a pleasure
when stresses pile high.
It demands time for leisure
while honing a sharper mind.

Knitting is my heirloom,
my mother’s voice and sigh.
Biscuits, tea, and honey —
all eaten by and by.

But most of all, knitting
is my epic work of ages.
Fateful weavings read
and created by the sages.

      1. Oh yes. And knitting and reading at the same time are fun. Can only do that while doing stockinette or seed, but love to see people’s expressions when I’m doing it.
