The Intruder - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

Knit one,

Purl two...

Oops,

Dropped a stitch.

Knit one,

Purl two,

Again the intrusion of your face,

In between the instructions that

tell how easy this cashmere wrap

will take shape.


Knit one,

Purl two,

Begin again...I must persist!


Don't allow it to get the best of you,

So what if his smile invades each line

after all this pattern is for beginners.


Your face intrudes again...

Now your voice!

Lord I am lost!

Knit one,

Purl two

Try again tomorrow!
