Rain House

This morning it proved very rainy weather so that I could not remove my goods to my house. I to my office and did business there, and so home, it being then sunshine, but by the time that I got to my house it began to rain again, so that I could not carry my goods by cart as I would have done. After that to my Lord’s and so home and to bed.

Is rain a good house, sunshine a good car?
I have one home.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Monday 16 July 1660.

    1. Thanks! I hit my head against that diary entry for hours before seeing the poem.

    2. Incidentally, erasures will probably be intermittent over the next couple of weeks; I’ll be off camping.
