Yarn

.

Knit, purl, knit, purl,

give the spool another whirl,

.

pray I do not drop a stitch,

just let me add another inch,

.

never mind – make it two

and soon I’ll have a wrap for you,

.

any shape, any size

in Dutch blue just like your eyes.

.

Put it on o’er your head

or wear it as a shawl instead,

.

hold it tightly like a hug

or roll it out like a rug,

.

spread it on your bed at night

or in the closet out of sight.

.

He loves me, he loves me not,

doesn’t matter, I’m still caught

.

stuck inside a ball of yarn,

unravel me between your arms,

.

then hold me to your face – pretend

that I can kiss your face again.

.

Knit, purl, knit, purl,

give the spool another twirl

.

and when at last we’re all unwound

I will put my needles down.

Polka-dotted lady bug,

I would give you such a hug

but if I held you close to me

I’m afraid you’d cease to be

.

so I shall place you on my finger,

maybe you won’t go, but linger

till a breeze lifts you away

to meet again another day.
