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.
