.5. Woollen Wonders - Poem by David Threadgold

Spindles turning
Wheels alight
Spinning wool
Throughout the night

Sun arising
Night we leave
Wool to loom
About to weave

Natural colours
Shades of grey
Making jumpers
All this day

Clatter, clatter
Wool and weft
Shuttle empty
No wool left

Picked up stitches
Once were dropped
Off to bed now
Loom has stopped
