It is fun, and a useful skill.

Two concerns:

1)  The poem runs to twenty-odd verses, making it a long investment in  
time if we undertake it.

2)  The public-access photos at ISOS have pretty good resolution, but  
the text is still small.  Somewhere I have a password to access higher  
resolution reproductions, but some of us probably don't have that.
