Each little square

Each little square
crocheted with care
for those who suffered
a blow of fortune unkind

Balanced out with the care
consideration and skill
to warm our hearts
in a cold winter

Those pure wool squares
stitched together
making caring blankets
of great beauty

What can I do
but wrap myself up
on a cold winter’s night
feeling the intense heat

Of so many
busy fingers
weaving their magic
touching my heart
