But the best was yet to come. I had gotten to know Henry while unsuccessfully searching for my father's poetry, and
I now had skills I hadn't had in the beginning. Because of learning to search out poetry for Henry, I was able to
go back to the search for father's poetry, and this time, my husband and I were successful. In the files of the
University of Chicago newspaper we found a poetry column my father ran, and in that column my father courted my 17 year old
mother in poetry, and she answered him in kind.
And for all of it, I could thank Henry. So perhaps Henry and I have done something for each other.
