A grand salute to knitted slippers
Colours different every time,
Striped forest green and winter white
Ruby red with midnight black
Checker-boarded two-tone brown
Harvest gold with navy blue,
Variegated strands of purple.
Snugly just below the ankles
Double thickness, soft as cushions
Not on sale at Bay or Zellers
Nor at shoe emporiums
Made for self by expert knitters
Or to the knitting impaired like me,
Given by the knitters who love us.
