Andrea’s Freedom, © Sandra Ann Jobling
Woven by Andrea’s hands
coloured silk thread tints Shakespeare’s death mask
each evening of Andrea’s making
signs of decay
thread through the eye of a silver needle
brother Milton knew death was not freedom
death is an act
embossed in symbolism
caressed by silk thread Andrea’s hands
tireless in their loving adoration
