A Spindle-Song

The spinner drafts with patient skill
Every inch of useful wool-
Coarse and rough for sacking-cloth;
Spider-thin for stitching-thread;
Strong and hard for sea-steed's harness;
Soft as down for drowsing babe;
Linden-smooth for hero's limbs,
Otter-sleek against his skin.

Every span of sacred thread
The spinner drafts with love and skill -
Frigga, Hearth-dis, bless her hands!

Š 1995 Ann Grķa Sheffield
