"You are old, Father William, the young man said
and your hair has become very white And yet you incessantly knit in your bed.
In fact you are knitting all night.
In my youth, Father William replied to his son,
I had nothing to keep my hands busy. But now that I knit, I create and have fun.
Without it, I’d surely feel dizzy."
more Father William……
“You are old,” said the youth, “one would hardly suppose
that your body was as steady as ever.
Yet you balance a needle on the end of your nose.
What made you so awfully clever?”
“I have knit since my childhood and crocheted as well
my hands have held wool in all weather.
What’s more I write patterns and edit to sell
And it’s kept my mind glued to it’s tether.”
