Friendship: A Tribute To My Dear Friend Irene Klass, z”l


An unlikely friendship we formed


Hard to define or explain


Never bound by rules or age


Rather by mutual ideas and thoughts

 

Trading ideas on current events


Lively discussions, sharing our views


Exchanging deep sighs


As we heard the news


And each dire report


Of another terrorist onslaught


Or sending me in search


Of an enlightening interview

 

Exciting me to compose uplifting prose


On birth and joy


Encouraging me to write


That poignant story


Of pathos and tragedy

 

A breadth of topics


Rich in their range, we shared


A meeting of minds


A collaboration of souls

 

Amazement upon her recitation


In perfect, rhythmic time


Of one of her prolific poems


Brimming with pearls of torah


And wisdom


Pathos and hope


Brilliant erudition

 

Mesmerized by her sharp mind


And clear portrayal


Awed by her unhesitating


Flawless delivery

 

At her behest – I transform


Some of her prose to song


And with her joie to vivre


And constant joy of discovery


She is elated


By this new transformation

 

Eternally young in spirit


And sense of adventure


Ever honest and steadfast


In her set of beliefs

 

Our was a friendship


I shall ever cherish


Steeped in humor


Deep in thought


Memories – of Irene


And a myriad lessons taught.
