Music lesson

Musique practice a good while, then to Paul’s Churchyard, and there I met with Dr. Fuller’s “England’s Worthys,” the first time that I ever saw it; and so I sat down reading in it, till it was two o’clock before I, thought of the time going, and so I rose and went home to dinner, being much troubled that (though he had some discourse with me about my family and arms) he says nothing at all, nor mentions us either in Cambridgeshire or Norfolk. But I believe, indeed, our family were never considerable.
At home all the afternoon, and at night to bed.

Music: the first clock,
before time had discourse
with arms.
A bridge in the night.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Monday 10 February 1661/62.
