THINGS WITH STRINGS

THINGS WITH STRINGS

Spider's web, strings of stars,
a weaver's loom, and old guitars.
Balls of yarn, and DNA,
string bikini, and crochet.

Cats cradle, spools of thread,
Tails on kites, and hairs on head.
Theory in music, or in science,
together making a string alliance.

Yo-yo, and Pinocchio, 
harp, violin and cello.
Catgut bow, and strings of cheese,
or whiskers on a prized Siamese.

Silly String, and G-string, 
an strings of birds on wing.
Math strings, "No strings attached,"
a roof that's been heather thatched.

String quilts, strings of pearls,
strings that tie to locks of curls.
Music staff, and balls of twine,
and tendrils from a sweet pea vine.

Heart, balloon, and aprons too,
and laced up in a tennis shoe.
Garland, hamstring, and quartet,
strings on fingers to not forget.

Braided rings, and strings of lights, 
pulling strings, and fishnet tights.
Telephone string through tin cans,
woven blankets and knit afghans.

Brown paper packages tied up in string,
needle, lanterns, and wind chimes that sing.
Drawstring, bowstring, and baby's pull toy,
string, strung, and stringing, we're all overjoyed.
