I appreciate your saying so, Martin, very much. You recognised this as a sonnet; I think the form might be called a Wyatt/Surrey Sonnet if I am not mistaken.

Mark and Jake,

Wow, not sure how I managed to miss you guys till now. Since I take occasions to do the like not for granted, I cannot forbear to register my warm thanks to you both!

Regards
