Covered With Love

In the Fall, after harvest, when all other chores were done,
Grandma relaxed by the fire, joining quilt pieces, one by one.
As she sewed, she would rock, in her wooden rocking chair.
By her side was a basket.  Everything was in there.

The chair had a squeak, as she rocked to and fro,
that seemed to set the tempo, as each stitch she would sew.
Each piece joined the others, side by side, line by line,
forming a kaleidoscope of colors, in its beautiful design.
The basket finally empty, the piecing now could stop.
She had made another masterpiece, a gorgeous quilt-top.
It's time for a party, but not with fun and games.
The top had to be joined, to the backing stretched on frames.
Friends and relatives came to help, for each one of them knew,
when their quilt-tops were finished, they'd all help them too.
Cotton batting was rolled out, covering the muslin backing.
The top overlaid it all.  Now came the stitching and tacking.
.As they stitched on the quilt, they talked about everything.
But, I enjoyed it most, when they'd work and sing.
Soon it was finished.  Grandma was filled with delight.
It, now, would keep her warm, on a cold wintry night.
In the same fashion, it happened, time and time again.
Each time there was a party, with relatives and friends.
The quilts are now heirlooms, handed down through the years,
the produces of her love, for the ones she held so dear.
