Weave your string in and out between the threads
The strands you leave behind, show up again out ahead
Distance winds up and around across the bedspread
Keep the needle moving under and then overhead
Look close and remember the journey is the reward
Fix that stitch, get back on the path, don't be misled.
Traditions of The People
by Scribes Belamy and Rosario

Attribution: Grandma Hazan
Age Estimate: 8 years (song much older)
Background: Grandma Hazan was one of the first of the elders of The People who left the forest and moved to Etonia. Between interviews that were conducted to understand what was happening in the forest, Grandma Hazan would often sing to entertain herself. Scribe Belamy recorded some of the songs, this particular song was sung while she working one a large blanket she was decorating.
