THE QUILTING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Dolly sits a-quilting by her mother, stitch by stitch
Last Line: Love will do the stitching if she'll only be my match.
Subject(s): Quilts


DOLLY sits a-quilting by her mother, stich by stitch,
Gracious, how my pulses throb, how my fingers itch,
While I note her dainty waist and her slender hand,
As she matches this and that, she stitches strand by strand.
And I long to tell her Life's a quilt and I'm a patch;
Love will do the stitching if she'll only be my match.
