A POEM ABOUT SURGERY

A POEM ABOUT SURGERY

I've managed to damage the interior of one of  my artificial knee joints. As a result I will have surgery this week on the knee. We won't know the seriousness until the surgeon takes a look. I won't be posting for a while as a result. In the meantime, here is Emily Dickinson's poem (1830-1886) entitled Surgeons  Must Be Very Careful: 
 
"Surgeons must be very careful
When they take the knife!
Underneath their fine incisions
Stirs the Culprit—Life!"

  1. Paul and Lita:
    Congratulations on retirement. I don’t get to see either of you much these days so it is good to hear that you are both healthy and looking forward to the future. May the Lord bless you and keep you as you enjoy the new path in your lives.
