TAT - TAT - TATTING
One fine spring's day my wife did say
As in my chair I sat,
There's one thing I must try to learn,
And that is, how to tat.
With her instructor soon she had
A bit of this and that,
And it was not so very long
Until she learned to tat.
And when one day she sat so quiet
I asked "What are you at?"
"Why dear" said she "I thought you knew
That I have learned to tat."
Soon she could ply her shuttle fast
Without an eyelid batting,
But oh the house it was so quiet
While she were at her tatting.
I thought she knew most everything,
As quilting, knitting, matting,
But I found out, it was not so
When my wife started tatting.
