15 December 2010 Comments Off on warmth
As I let wool slide through my fingers
creating garments for my children,
I keep thinking about warmth.
The smooth movement of yarn
over wooden needle,
conjuring images of women who couldn’t
go to the nearest store and buy a hat
for a dollar.
Who knit out of necessity, and not just
And like all the little things I do,
to create a homey atmosphere,
I am grateful for the ability
to provide for them
more than what is needed.
