The samurai

A samurai

Proud and strong 

On a background of mustard and grey

The sweater I knitted for Albert, oh so many years ago

In those times

I had the patience to follow a knitting guide

Row by row, colour by colour

Sometimes only knitting one row or two

I don’t remember how long it took me

To finish this project

But it probably took months

And when it was ready

Albert wore it gratefully

It now sits in our closet

A relic of the past 

But when I think of all the time and effort

That went into making this gift of love

I feel proud
