Beara Socks

I am knitting these peacock socks for you

in the cradle of the Beara Reeks

weaving into them the rain off the Atlantic                  

and the scent of honeysuckle off the hedgerows

while I yarn about babies born elsewhere

and blankets destined to find them

and talk of a herd of alpacas

brought here for their fleece

their long necks straining for home

and hoping as I knit and purl this Beara blend

 to mend your broken heart
