Woodworker of the Year

She admires the care and attention
people pay to something they love,
the patience, imagination, and skill
it takes to help dying greatness
have moments of polished joy.
The nurses arrive on Thursdays
for her to watch the show
with a cup of dairy free tea
and take a break from her craft.
