A Spindle of Yarns
by Peter McEvoy

As the spinning wheel sings
the cupboard of the years open
and from the shelves of days
that hold the living of those hours
I will gather the threads
of joy, of laughter,
of tears,of love;
these I will spin
with the fingers of memory,
then, as the treadle swings,
I will weave the spindle of yarns
into dreams for your delight.
