An Ode To Handspun

Dusty wheel,
I spin again,
Wool to yarn,
Like prose from pen,
At first ‘tis rough,
To find the phrase,
Yet flowing soon,
With wit and ease,

A plot with twists,
This trade I ply,
And soon the page,
Is inked with dye,
And now admire,
This beauteous skein,
The tale I’ve spun,
My heart contains.

(100% Falkland wool, dyed in the colorway Napa Valley by Yarn Hollow. Spun into 200 yards of sport weight yarn.)
