If you are a weaver of fine cloth,
weave as if the goods were to embrace
The limbs of your beloved.
If you are a blower of glass,
fashion the cup as if it were to be touched
by the lips of your beloved.
From the Hindi
Weave Anglo-Saxon wefan. Cf. Dutch weven, German weben, Old Nors vefa; cognate with Greek ύфοζ, web, and with Sanskrit ūrņavābhi, spider, literally wool-weaver.
