What a beautiful poem to end with, Scott. Thank you so much for this month's selection. The love parents have for their kids is most effectively brought out here. Most poignant.

'Calloused hands'

What an image!!

It just moved me. 'the carpenter smooths his daughter's gown'

Inspite of the disability (the hard skin) to do things correctly, how beautifully he makes an attempt to show his affection. So many layers of attitude, behaviour and mental grit.

Thank you Scott Mason!
