What a green scarf says


This scarf is wide, long and warm.
The width elicits surprise yet
it was made with certain deliberation.

It is for one that is tall
and lives where snow falls
and wind blows during 
long days.

A scarf that is warm,
able to wrap long around
neck, face, keeping cold out.

Long, thick, wide ~ echoing 
my wish for you to be covered,
safe, warm, protected, saved.

Green for beauty, 
for the hope of Spring to come again,
for sunshine. 
Green brown for tree trunks beauty,
the fading leaf with the promise
of more to come again;
brown for good clean dirt for planting,
for trees and peonies.

This scarf has the words
I love you
knitted in it over, and over, and over.

It is of trees, flowers, warmth and reminders of spring 
in the midst of a cold, long winter.

Ravelry here.

Still reading Everyday Saints and loving every word.
