Letter: Bracing verse

Sir: Noting the further commentary over the obituary about Nora Beloff (18 February), I must remind Jack Pole that although I had enormous respect for her, the poem about the maths master's braces was not written by her, but by me. She was unlikely to have seen Mr Morris's braces because they would normally only be revealed in the boys' changing room.
