May Rose says goodbye

I’m sorry to say that after 33 years of summer (wonderful) visits, I can no longer be a small part of the joys of your gorgeous town. This winter I had a “heart episode” and was told that “altitude” can no longer be a part of my vocabulary.

Usually, at this date, I’m on my way to you. Alas, it’s not going to be a part of my life any more. My “poetry” days will be every second Tuesday of the month, in a delightful Aspen-like tea room in Brooklyn. The poems I read will not be much fun (because Brooklyn is not great fun), but they’ll have to do.

I will miss you very much, and I won’t be too happy, but if something pleases my or amuses me, I’ll let you know.

Thank you for your kind tolerance to me over so many lovely summers.

May Rose Salkin

Brooklyn, N.Y.
