Knitting pattern row as a poem stanza

I am knitting another Walker Treasury Project sampler and one of the rows had a seven stitch repeat that scans, to me, poetically:

Knit one, yarn over,
Slip slip knit (it),
Knit one, knit two tog.,
Yarn over, knit (one).

I say that to myself as I knit that row and it even scans in the same rhythm as I knit the stitches (an SSK takes three or four beats to knit but a k2tog only takes one or two). Funkay!
