Mary’s Gift

Long hours spent crocheting

Such an intricate design.

She deftly hooks the needle

Through thread so very fine.

Each stitch is thus intended

To captivate a plan.

The finished product beautiful,

Her practiced eye does scan.

An heirloom she’s created

With talent, patience rare.

Long hours spent crocheting

Results show love and care.

cover for the Sacrament table at church.
