Knitting for Africa (part 22)

A Humble Toast

Zanny’s knitting’s hidden, but still handy.
Good Father Francis, elevates the host.
At Mass’s end, he calls upon our Sandy
to speak to us. And lest you think I boast,
she does so in a kind of humble toast.

Quickly, she describes the goals of KasCare*;
in seconds more, the programs that we trust
will make a difference: KasKids, Knit-a-Square.
It’s clear the congregation gets the thrust.
How can the cause be anything but just?
(to be continued)

* the incorporated name of our charity

Lovely poem!

I have always wanted to learn to knit and make blankets. :)

So glad to read this poem – beautiful! I knit alone. However, reading this, I feel part of a lage community – worldwide friends with a common goal for the children. Thank you for this inspiration!
