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.

The Professor is an old old friend of mine, whom I have admired ever since I met him over half a Century ago and with whom I am in touch until this very moment.
All I can wish him, his wife Masha and all his family is continued health and happiness until both of us will meet and where I hope to sit near him when we all meet our Maker.
Keep going Isaac

Absolutely amazing! If my brain were half as agile as yours, I would consider myself blessed.

Dear Isaac,
Reading your new material is once again a real breath of fresh air. Keep it up. We miss you and your beloved Masha
