what is good is doubly /good/ when it is a matter of two socks

(poetry diary 101) looking for good socks for my father-in-law, who is recovering from various illnesses  = I’m also looking for good sock poems = I like the ending of this Neruda poem, about socks, especially:

Ode to My Socks

Pablo Neruda 

Maru Mori brought me
a pair
of socks
which she knitted herself
with her sheepherder’s hands,
two socks as soft
as rabbits.
