Knitting Poetry, the Third

From Me to You

I made this little thing for you

With two sticks and some string

I worked on it for quite some time

It’s a very special thing

 

Choosing a pattern took awhile

But I finally found the one

It spoke of you and begged to be

Given to you when it was done

 

The yarn is precious and very soft

No acrylic for you, my dear

If you take care and treat it right

It will last you many a year

 

But, do not fear to put it to use

Enjoy it all the more

I would rather see it worn threadbare

Than forgotten in your drawer

 

This gift of love from me to you

Is more than yarn in knots

In every stitch there is the thought

“I love you lots and lots!”
