Gertrude, They named her. Gertrude, No rhythmic beat to it; So not yet set to a melody by Nelson Riddle To be sung ny Frank Sinatra.
No sweet notes of lyric phrases by Paul Williams Or Stevie Wonder... Even Beethoven wrote no classical music score, Keats nor Frost wrote the name in rhyme, Being before her time, they knew nothing of her.
Gertrude, Shortened 'Gerty' But either way she is Lady Love Lady Wisdom Lady with heart so big It must encompass the world.
Treasured friend, Met her yesterday when we and the world Were younger. Now sixty years hence, I offer no rhyme Or musical score No melody and without pretentious flare I which her love In abundance and happiness Always.
