Poem #3

Amy’s Quilt

I made you a quilt

of forty-two blocks

(six across seven down)

with 21 squares

in strips of berry colours

and 21 plain blocks

of burnt orange.

 

As I sewed I hoped

love would stitch herself in

but wooed her, anyway,

with slivers of silver and gold

for bright strips

on the plain blocks

from 1 to 21

to count the candles on the cakes

that processessed  through the years

Amy-s quilt
