A Handy Thing... as told to my grandson...

A Handy Thing
It is such a handy thing
It holds and wears my ring

It claps, waves and greets a friend
A paper airplane off it will send

A fist to show how mighty strong
And fingers to lead me in a song

With pencil or pen it does write
With brush and paint bring colors bright

Nothing is as kind as its gentle touch
Hands to say I love you very much.
