We Will All The Pleasures Prove

Work Text:

From the needle to the thread

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove,
That fine-tipped steel and fine-tipped thread
Can yield as we silken cloth together wed.

Rainbow sleeves we will sew for 돌,
마고자 to keep off the cold.
If these 한복 thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.

The thread's reply to the needle

If all the world and love were young,
And truth in every needle's tongue,
These pretty visions might me move
To live with thee and be thy love.

You guide me, though, to hem a sleeve;
Then fly away--I stay enweaved.
A needle stitches with many threads,
Promiscuous! I shan't thee wed.

I cast my lot instead with cloth,
Will you join us and then tie off?
Stitch by stitch you and I will sew,
Now leave for new thread; I'll stay below!
