sew it is

bring me thread
red with want
and thinly shining
from my spool

bring me pins
and thin as hope
seemly seams

bring me needles
bright eyed
and sharp gazed
never erring
to bear the thread
between the pins

bring me shears
firmly clenching
that I may cut
the threads
that unruly hang

bring me cloth
tight woven
that I may stitch
a life
that I may mend
the days

sew it is
and sew it shall be
