Sunday night sock knitting

Maru Mori brought me a pair of socks that she knit with her shepherd’s hands.
Two socks as softas rabbit fur.
I thrust my feet inside them as if they were two little boxes
knit from threads of sunset and sheepskin.
My feet were two woolen fish in those outrageous socks, two gangly,
navy-blue sharks impaled on a golden thread,
two giant blackbirds, two cannons:
were my feet honored by those heavenly socks.
They were so beautiful
(from poem by Pablo Neruda)

Mr Mole :)

The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning his little home. First with brooms, then with dusters; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a brush and a pail of whitewash; till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing

After all that Cleaning I think Moley could do with a nice cup of tea don't you?
