Dear prospective reader, whoever you may be,

I am nearing ninety three,

And what I have written you can see.

I hope it’s my contribution to posterity,

Because that would certainly please me.

Most of the time, I am sitting at home,

Busy writing poem after poem,

But, whether it’s a worthy occupation,

And justifies congratulation,

Is a matter of speculation.

But, it doesn’t really matter

If me you would like to flatter,

Because, the time is drawing near,

When I no longer will be here.

And so, at the end of the day,

In conclusion, I wish to say,

Read what follows, if you may,

But, if on rejecting it you insist,

You will never know what you missed.
