Six Pins

Six pins a day
That’s what I was told
Put in just six pins
And your lace will unfold

I queried these words then
Six pins seemed so few
There are so many pinholes
When you start something new

But if you sit down
To place just those six pins
Then those six turn to sixty
And the challenge begins

To place just six more pins
Before you give in
Just finish that section
Maybe just one more pin?  ………
