    I wrote this waiting for church to begin one Sunday morning:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A piece of string
    is a wonderful thing;
    a snake that binds and wraps.
    A tool so neat.
    A tool complete.
    It ties, it winds, it snaps.

    A piece of string
    is a curious thing;
    it's life a marv'lous double.
    With a pull, it's taut.
    With a push, it's naught
    but a wriggly worm of a stubble.

    With levers and planes
    one hardly complains.
    Their life is mechanical ease.
    With windlass and screw,
    it's clear what they do.
    But string is always a tease.

    It may frazzle, unravel
    or slip as it travels.
    Knots can be so unkind in that way.
    But through every storm,
    string's sinuous charm,
    maintains and endures every day.
