Farewell Michele

We are lucky that Michele came
To study how eyes manage their aim.
She taught us how not to shrink
From studying how monkeys think.
Her knowledge and skills are rare.
She was always willing to share,
With amazing eloquence and lucidity,
Science and also officious stupidity.
We will miss her energetic step
And abundance of intellectual pep.
We regret her move to Los Angeles
But she'll always still be one of us.
