Not Magic? KNOT Magic!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
I bought a treasure at Goodwill,
For one whole, US dollar,
Plus a tax of seven cents!
It is a tie of innocence,
A self-portrait of children as they are
Playing in the sunny times,
And the rainy too, while smiling still!
Like a rainbow, yes indeed,
Are its tints, and the times brought to mind!
The label inside reads,
"Save the Children",
With this note from Mary, age 9,
Attached, "That's what friends are for."
The tie is about ties worthy to keep.
When I'm falling into feeling mad
Or sad, my tie stays "all smiles" glad,
And might even keep me smiling more!
Why, with such cheerful charms given,
I might even wear it while asleep!
Author's Notes: Speaking of smiles, I bought an irresistible tie last week at Goodwill, mainly a clothing store with cheap prices with sales benefiting the handicapped. It has a black background with about five, very bright pictures of summer fun, apparently drawn by children. The inside label reads, "Save the Children", a charity saving children worldwide in extreme poverty. This is among my best poems to me, since it's true! It does work magic. I realize now that sometimes I do need to lighten up, among my biggest challenges, and the knot does work the spell of keeping my ties with good cheer.
