Saturday August 7, 2010 A Heart Tied with a Knot



The heart that's bound,
Tied in knots
Hold it together,
Try not to let it fall apart,
Use different knots,

The Love Knot, Strangle Knot, Witches Knot
All the different hitches,
From Half to Slip,
The unusual Hairy Devil,
To the plain bow knot, etc.,

Old knots unrecorded,
New Knots to discover,
Knots made up on the spot,
What's the use of this long list of knots,
Holding the heart that is falling apart,

Torn wide open...
Because you loved too much,
...or not enough,
Silver threads or a bit of old string,
There is nothing new in this activity.
