This poem was written thanks to a poetry workshop exercise from Jan Owen. Poems with "fabric" somehow incorporated were suggested as the springboard. See Richard Wilbur's "Love Calls Us to the Things of This World" and Rosemary Dobson's "5 Folding the Sheets". Both are wonderful sources of inspiration.
