Exegesis

(Lord’s day). To church in the morning, and then home and dined with my wife, and so both of us to church again, where we had an Oxford man give us a most impertinent sermon upon “Cast your bread upon the waters,” &c. So home to read, supper, and to prayers, and then to bed.

morning ford—
as you read the water
so read the bed


Erasure haiku derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Sunday 2 February 1661/62.
