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 Zeller’s

Nor at shoe emporiums

Made for self by expert knitters

Or to the knitting impaired like me,

Given by the knitters who love us.
