A Poetic Farewell 

WOULD that I had known you,

In those days of yester year,

With beauty of your verse,

Walter de la Mare,

Probably you would have driven me,

To jealous distraction,

The beauties that you surely knew,

And with your verse wrote a lovely Farewell.

I wish to write one at my age too (avec vous)

PS. If there is a heaven,

Lord may I be up there with you,

(dreams take me over)

August ends the year 2017,

Just a wearying of me at 85.
