The Amazing Lace: Challenge #3.

From our lovely hosts:

Challege #3: The Poetry Challenge

Poetry is a way of exploring the deeper essence of the human (and lace) selves, what it is that makes us human (or lace, as the case may be). Poetry can take many forms, from the classical dactylic hexameter to the haiku to free verse; it can rhyme or not rhyme; it can be written in the first, second, or third person. What all forms of poetry have in common is their ability to evoke a deep sentiment and emotion.

Your challenge: One poem, written by, for, or about your lace teammate posted to your blog (or photohosting account) by midnight EDT (UTC -4:00), July 2.

Ahem. With apologies to Emily:

A Challenge--Trellis! said Helen's Lace
Enticing me with silken thread
You must knit seven into five--
I knit a camisole instead

She of the muted Blues drew me to
The Chart--It belied complexity and grace
Bewitched, I began to knit
Intoxicated with a love for lace

Stitches shivered as I coaxed
Through the loop, the Strand
It slipped onto my waiting needle--

Fun fact for today: You can sing all of Ms. Em's poems to the tune of "Camptown Races."

Very excellent effort.

AND the Gilligan's Island Theme song AND The Yellow Rose of Texas.

Oh, ballad meter. You are our friend. As are random capital letters.
