There is no greater muse for poets than love and for Isidore Elfman this is no exception. Now retired, he spends most of his days writing romantic poetry about his wife, Carol, to whom he has been married for 45 years. Every Sunday Carol accompanies her impassioned poet to a local New York City cafe, where he reads his odes of devotion to her before a captive audience.
