"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.”
