#Napowrimo #Day17 #Knots
A Dictionary poem for #Day17 of the Napowrimo challenge. Based on my old scouting days! enjoy.
Don’t get stressed,
in time – you’ll master it
creating an artform from two ends of rope
bridges don’t need wood or metal but a few simple knots
Reef Knot, Clove and Timber Hitch are handy for a pioneer
and some west country whipping will soon get those old ropes into shape
Loop your ropes tight around the tree to maintain tension
Sheet bend and bowline and the old Round Turn comes in here
The half hitch keeps these in tight.
Be careful with your left and your right though
as one wrong move with your rope work could spell disaster
Can’t have a Granny Knot where a Reef Knot is Needed.
