.the herring fleet .

.the herring fleet .

as you may know,

it was a seedy day

yester day,

so i lit the fire and sewed

superman pants.


used herring bone stitch,

soothing, in white,

watched the film,


and remembered.

fridays was fish.


we had herrings,

fried, the skin crisp,

the roes plump and hard,

the boys liked soft,

suppose they would.


used old cotton,

naturally, and the wire

needle threader,

fingered stiffed,

sewing done, felt a little,



more coal on the fire, all will be well.
