Sleeping on it

Lay long talking with my wife about ordering things in our family, and then rose and to my office, there collecting an alphabet for my Navy Manuscript, which, after a short dinner, I returned to and by night perfected to my great content. So to other business till 9 at night, and so home to supper and to bed.

lay long
talking about order

a rose collecting
an alphabet

night perfected
at night


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Wednesday 4 March 1662/63.
