As I’ve just completed an embroidery about friendship I thought this poem would follow on nicely for ‘Poem of the Month’
It was written by Susan Polis Schutz. I first came across it in 1978, it was written on a card given to me by my sister on the occasion of my confirmation. I kept the card for years and eventually got it framed, it still hangs in my hallway. My sister lives about 3 miles away, close enough to be there when we need each other, but not in each others pockets!
to talk with
to dance with
to sing with
to eat with
to laugh with
to cry with
to think with
to be my friend
My sister, me and Wags the dog on Catbells
I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really
I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden.
I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect.
