Till the brain begins to swim!
Till the eyes are heavy and dim!
Seam, and gusset, and band,
Band, and gusset, and seam,—
Till over the buttons I fall asleep,
And sew them on in a dream!
O Men, with sisters dear!
O Men, with mothers and wives!
It is not linen you're wearing out,
But human creatures' lives!
In poverty, hunger, and dirt,—
Sewing at once, with a double thread,
A shroud as well as a shirt.
- In the textile art of India, indigenous motifs are described to be "ageless" as they seem to possess marvelous sense of aesthetics true for all times like lotus, the serpent, the elephant, the chakrā or cakrā, certain trees and so forth.
