The doorbell rang,
I didn’t hear it
I was not near it,
Last thing on my mind.
In the kitchen,
Just not caring
food preparing, lunch was on the ring
Cold weather meating
Enough to warm and make me sing
Through the mail box
Dropped a note,
You missed delivery
Wrap up warmly
Start your journey
Step out spritely
Don’t forget to bring that note!
Reach post office produce ID
Hocus Pocus, dear girl focus
Collect a parcel,
Addressed to me.
precious parcel grasp
Under my oxter
A mind full of wonder
the tape was cut
box ends open
packing paper removed.
Here on the floor
Texture and colourful treasures
A surprise gift for months of pleasure
A box filled with a selection of yarn, gifted to me all the way from California.
Thank you Brighid, from the bottom of my heart and already twitching fingers!
Now let the crafting party begin!
You have spun a good yarn about it, indeed! 🙂
Now to twist it into something special!
Ooooh, love all those colors and your poem. Someone is gonna get a nice gift for ?

Yes, and half the fun is in the planning!
well, my friend, this will keep you busy 🙂 :), Carina
The needles of my mind are already clicking. First i need to finish the project I have started.
Wow, how wonderful! I can just imagine your hours of pleasure.
Plenty of fun while cosy and warm by my fireside.
That was GREAT, you are light on your feet i think! and what gorgeous colours in all that wool.. c
Thank you Celi, It is a real Alladin’s cave.
I hope your holiday is going well!
Wonderful surprise. I have another box of yarn ready for my granddaughter. Dianne
Dianne, I am sure your granddaughter will be as delighted as I was.
Poetry’s your gig, G’mar…along with knitting. 😉
Alice, I’m no poet and I know it!
Fabulous post, poem, and present! Have fun with your weaving of those luscious textures.
Nancy, the looking, caressing, thinking and testing has started.
What a lovely surprise!!
I just love the possibilities offered by these wonderful wools. Almost as good in the imagination as the reality. Hats. Mitts. Scarves. Stuff…..
WWW, You are reading my mind!
Great poem and an exciting gift package. Wonderful!
Celia, it was as if Christmas had arrived early!
I don’t believe it I just ordered some packs of mixed yarn like that on eBay today! I fully understand your excitement. I should let you loose in my yarn cupboard.
Brenda, letting me loose in your yarn cupboard might be dangerous! I have terrible trouble keeping my hands behind my back in craft or yarn shops!
What great fun! Your poem is delightful and I was thinking, as I looked at your picture, that I have some of the same yarn! Then you said it came from California. Perhaps it comes from a store near me. 🙂 I hope you’ll share some of your projects as they get underway!
I will certainly be sharing the finished projects, once I complete the work in progress that seems to be causing me problems at the moment. 🙁 Never fear, I will not give in.
So the winter will not be too bad then?
Looks like my winter will be interesting!
I missed this post some how, I love your darling poem, and am so glad you are enjoying the yarn.
I am glad I linked back so. I have played and lookd at the yarn many times, but the Pom Poms set going with my adventure.
