Poem: Seamstress

Seamstress

by June Nash

.

Seamstress sits in chair

Other’s clothes repair

While dressed in old rags

Of good deeds she brags

.

It tears at her heart

When they fall apart

Her family and friends

Their ailments must mend

.

Takes thread from her soul

To make others whole

Creating a run

In own fabric spun

.

Takes no time to darn

Repairing the harm

Stays a wee bit frayed

Her peace for theirs trade

.

Until a mere rag

Across own rips sag

Seamstress sits in chair

Other’s woes repair
