Socks-ifery


Make me, O socks, thy spinning wheel complete.
Thy cotton fabric softly embrace my toes.
Colorful patterns engulf eager feet.
Our intimate desires, only we shall know.
Without thee, my shoes wouldn't feel the same.
Without thee, I would walk all in shame.

Thee appears to me in purples, reds, blues, and greens.
How I look forward everyday to hold you!
I carefully stitch love into each of your seams.
My death would imminent t'were I sold you.
Looks of anger and envy we get from all.
You loved me through the years, whether feet big or small.

Enduring smelly sporting events,
Thy held sure and strong.
Thy stood with me in every bitter-sweet moment.
May thee threads hold together long.
Thine cushioning support touches my heart.
Of every day's attire, you're my favorite part.

(this is a play off of 'Huswifery' by poet Edward Taylor)

    cool! thanks for adding the note explaining the title. i'm not familiar with that poem. the mention of spinning wheel i did not understand, but all in all i found this to be another great poem. well, almost great. i do believe i found a few errors:

    My death would imminent t'were I sold you. ....other than not knowing about t'were...there should be BE in front of imminent (an adjective)
    AND:
    make the THYs THEEs, and make THEE THY in the following 3 lines:
    Thy held sure and strong.
    Thy stood with me in every bitter-sweet moment.
    May thee threads hold together long.

    maybe you wrote this when you were sleepy? ?

    thanks for sharing! may your socks always be with you, though bare feet can feel pretty good at times and you might want to take the socks aka sox off in the shower. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
