Wondrous Wednesdays: Ode to a Zipper

A little ditty for you to enjoy…

There is none so lovely

as a handpicked zip

laid and stitched

with barely a nip

of tiniest silk thread

floating atop

the basted-in zipper

of dress or top.

Oh marvels invisible,

modern you say?

Not my little stitches

that cover the fray;

not my controlled, careful,

neat, clean and fine,

silk measured stitches

in one perfect line!

Oh hand worked zipper!

you are a thrill–

I shall open and close you

with joy, yes! I will!
