On Jennifer's Merits

Jenny ! Jenny ! People like you are few, not many
You worth the whole world and not a mere penny
Your are there to make our day so sunny
Your precious assistance heals like honey.

With your sharp insight as if from heaven,
You make my thoughts fertile and no longer barren
With a cherishing talent you unveil what is hidden,
And with an artful touch, you add zest on what is written.

Rejecting any feelings of reluctance,
Stirred by the ardour of poetic relevance,
Gifted with flair to shun any fence,
Skilfully you intervene to erase nonsense.

To you, Jennifer Derfoldy, I am not crude.
I owe you much thanks and gratitude.
For being so generous and so modest,
I wish you joy and all the best!
