stitch sew and mend

Daily Prompt – Tailor



with her arched back

a bent head, she works

the midnight lamps she burns

respect she earns

fingers rhythmically moved

no respite , she never slowed

hands calloused by  thread

she earns her butter and bread

she pricks a buttonhole

sews dispersed souls

she is her brood's hope

bonds them with  rope

she is not just a Tailor

of deep seas a brave sailor.

 garments she crafts with honesty

covers not only curves

but highlights a lady's modesty.
