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

labour deftly.
