Poem of the day: “Magic”

As I headed to my sewing machine today, I suddenly thought: “Sewing is magic.”

Then the last two lines of the following poem popped into my head:


Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
Eddie touched a troll,
Laurie danced with witches once,
Charlie found some goblins’ gold.
Donald heard a mermaid sing,
Susy spied an elf,
But all the magic I have known
I’ve had to make myself.

Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends
