Creed - a poem by Lee Robinson

This poem appears in the frontispiece to Memory Lessons: A Doctor's Story, by Jerald Winakur, a geriatrician who openly details his childhood, his career, and the changes in medical care over the decades, then how they all come together as he is forced to confront his own father's decline into Alzheimer's dementia. The poet is his wife, Lee Robinson.

Creed

If you ask me what I believe in,

it is the body of the ninety year old
straining to stand upright, each vertebra
a testament, each muscle a miracle.

It is the shape of her head,
a sculpture the artist
has been working on for centuries,

the skull visible
under the veil of skin,
and if you ask me for a sermon

I will give you that skin,
every wrinkle a parable.
If you insist upon sacrament

I say take her hand in yours:
it is the only way to save yourself.
Fold your flesh into her bones

until you do not have to ask me anymore
what to believe in.
It is the body

the body,

Amen.

  • I wanted to write to say how pleased my wife and I were at your professional handling of our estate planning and preparation of new wills. We were put at ease by your visit to our home for an interview and were pleased that you listened to us and captured the things that we felt were important.

    --Robert and Christine Simonson, Fairport
  • In order to finalize the documents we came to your office and were greeted in a very professional manner and we could not have asked for finer service. We left with copies of everything we needed and feel very confident our needs have been met. Thanks again. We will surely recommend you should the opportunity arise.

  • I have been working with Weinstein & Randisi for about two years now. Elizabeth Randisi, through a very thorough process, has helped my wife and me determine what is really important in our lives. Thus, we were able to draft a living will that reflected our most important values regarding our estate.

    --David and Ajia Cherry, Fairport
  • I would like to give a testimony for Elizabeth Randisi, an estate attorney with Weinstein & Randisi. Her knowledge of wills and estate planning was clearly demonstrated in her presentation to us. Realizing our need for a will, my husband and I went to see Elizabeth.

    --Kathy and Gary Gray, Webster
  • Filing for Medicaid is never an easy or fun process. However, working with the Weinstein & Randisi firm made the process simple and streamlined. We were able to obtain all files and records regarding Medicaid enrollment within a few days using specially prepared checklists and verbiage recommended by our assigned paralegal.
