Oh lovely stash of mine
Forgive me, for I have sinned (again)
Lead me from temptation for
I looked and saw, and my heart did desire
A bad day at work, a sad situation
Comfort of the squishy kind I needed
Eyes strayed from your loyal presence
Sitting, trusting by my side, do not show your ire
See the evidence of shame before me
Gleefully pulled from the mailbox
Unwrapped in haste, caressed, sheepy essence inhaled
A happy sigh exhaled
Projects plotted and planned
The heart gladdened, of woolly goodness
Silky promises of socks to come…
A pop of colour, oh fun and joy!
All these I add to you, oh stash
Beautiful skeins from past acquisitions
You say: Pick me! knit, me!
Hurry, yarn I no longer want to be!
And yes, through fingers wound
With sticks and time
On the sofa with you I shall sit
Creating a garment your beauty will fit
All in good time, my pretties
All in good time.
