A Fateful Visit

As you thank the Fates
For the afternoon tea,
Urd hands you some dates
Fresh from the World´s Tree;

Skuld resumes her knitting,
her scissors laid by,
Verdandi is sitting
and choosing a dye;

She´s bored of plain white,
Why not colorful wool ?
Skuld starts to shred,
Urd empties her spool;

The wheel´s spinning motion
Makes dizzy your head;
You shouldn´t have eaten
That much gingerbread;

The couch is so cozy -
The thread goes 'snap' -
You jerk from your dozing -
And wake from a nap.
