Old Mother Twitchett has but one eye

by Jessy Randall

Old Mother Twitchett has but one eye because she is a needle, and needles must be women, they poke you, and hurt you, and take care of your clothes, and it’s difficult to find them in crowds, they blend in, invisible, their paths through the woods are nearly grown over.
