    When you were talking about poems and why it can’t be better conveyed by plain words, I immediately thought of a poem I wrote when my parental leave ended and my kid first started daycare. There are words for how I felt about it, but the poem expresses it better.

    And since it’s about kids and so on-topic for the rest of the episode, I thought I’d share:

    A tiny piece of self apart
    These tiny hands that hold my hears
    A tiny flake of dancing snow
    A tiny spark that flickers light
    And all my strength to keep her cold
    And all my will to keep her bright
    A reckless world, a storming sea
    A tempest, a flood, a fight
    A tiny little all-of-me
    A tiny candle in the night
    Oh great colossal everything!
    Oh weighty little one
    Oh fear, oh joy, oh thrive, oh sing!
    Oh worry just begun.

    Thanks for another great episode!
