the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Forty-one does well what few can do -
Operate on mangled wrists and hands,
Restoring them to functionality.
That such a gift is rare she understands,
Yet home and office sometimes block her view.
Often, though, amid the day's demands,
Not really thinking what she knows is true,
Engrossed in work, she's pleased as she can be.
