    The Patchwork Quilt"

    Of all the things a woman's hands have made,
    The quilt so lightly thrown across her bed--
    The quilt that keeps her loved ones warm--
    Is woven of her love and dreams and thread.

    When I have spoken to you of its beauty,
    "A mere hodge-podge of calico," you said,
    "A necessity of homely fashioning,
    Just a covering made of cloth and thread.

    I knew you'd missed the message hidden there
    By hands that fashioned quilts so long ago.
    Ambition and assurance are the patches
    And the stitches of a quilt are love, I know.

    I think a quilt is something very real--
    A message of creation wrought in flame;
    With grief and laughter sewn into its patches
    I see beyond the shadows, dream and aim.
