I think this W.Whitman's poem expresses sad and mournful feelings of all admirers of Stanislaw Lem:


1
O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
   But O heart! heart! heart!
     O the bleeding drops of red,
       Where on the deck my Captain lies,
         Fallen cold and dead.
 
2
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up-for you the flag is flung-for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths-for you the shores a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
   Here Captain! dear father!
     This arm beneath your head;
       It is some dream that on the deck,
         You've fallen cold and dead.
 
3
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;
   Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
     But I, with mournful tread,
       Walk the deck my Captain lies,
         Fallen cold and dead.

I would like to send a message of admiration and grief to Lem's family, friends and fans.

Truly one of the great authors of our time.

You have gone, but You will always be with us.

I would like to propose that at 12:00 on April 4th we all raise a glass and salute the passing of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, and drink a toast to celebrate his life.
We may not be able to be there in person, but no matter where we are in the world, we can all be there together in spirit.

To Lem!



Sounds good to me - that would be 6am over here (EST = -5.00 GMT)...orange juice or coffee will most likely be the order of the day I'm afraid.

It will be 3AM out here in sunny California, but the mere rotational cycle of this planet will not stop me from raising a glass to such an occasion

Ok we've just returned from the funeral.
It was modest & austere, which was Lem's wish.

Nevertheless, we're happy we had the oppurtunity.

Deepest condolences to Lem's family and everyone who, like me, was a passionate fan always waiting for his amazing revelations.The stage of literature has lost one of its most profound actors.
