ROUNDEL FOR THESE TIMES, by            
First Line: Resume your knitting, friend, drop useless care
Last Line: The storm tonight brings havoc in its track.
Subject(s): Knitting; Storms


Resume your knitting, friend, drop useless care,
Keep steady count of your stitches, forth and back.
The storm tonight brings havoc in its track.
The rain beats down, winds issue from their lair,
The house is tortured as if 'twere on the rack.
Resume your knitting, friend, drop useless care,

Keep steady count of your stitches, forth and back.
The storm's ill-will the sheltering house must bear;
You have no power to check its loot and sack.
You can but "carry on", else power you lack.

Resume your knitting, friend, drop useless care,
Keep steady count of your stitches, forth and back.
The storm tonight brings havoc in its track.
