Knots in a smooth running string
And whirlpools in smooth running streams
Knots that prick and whirlpools that suck
And get you stuck in a circular rut
Knots may secure but knots that cannot be cut
And being gentle never makes them give up
Knots with equal measure of love and hate
Knots that neither unite, nor properly separate.
Knots that with patience themselves, release
Or knots old, that degenerate and then end in a break
Knots, tricky and knots, tight, with a catch 22 take
“Knots that neither unite nor properly seperate…” This line with its objectivity, is simply great .
