Apron - The Ghastly Nightmare or the Butcher's Dream
Apron design (and modeled here) by David Elliot
The Apron shows the illustration that David did for Margaret's wonderful poem 'The Ghastly Nightmare or the Butcher's Dream'. This appeared in Margaret's collection of poems The Word Witch edited by Tessa Duder.
Our butcher dreamed the other night
That, spry as any elf,
Each leg of mutton took a crutch
And went off by itself,
That all the little sausages
Grew tails and furry feet,
And, sliding from their butcher’s hooks,
They ran into the street.
And suddenly the shop was filled,
As far as he could tell,
With people wanting mutton legs
And sausages as well.
