Slowly I Married Her (1979-)
 1979 Interview (Canadian TV Program  "Authors")
Harry Belafonte's wife, who had been very suspicious about my presence because I had suggested that Harry Belafonte change his show and stop singing calipso and start sing about himself... He's a very great singer. We were drinking late into the night at the Four Seasons Hotel and I got out this poem and I thought he could set it to music. And I don't know whether it was the Vodka or not, but she wept a few tears that sealed the night very nicely.

Finally, it was not H. Belafonte but Lewis Furey who set this poem to music
