Poor in spirit

(Lord’s day). Church in the morning: dined at home, then to Church again and heard Mr. Naylor, whom I knew formerly of Keyes College, make a most eloquent sermon. Thence to Sir W. Batten’s to see how he did, then to walk an hour with Sir W. Pen in the garden: then he in to supper with me at my house, and so to prayers and to bed.

urchin at church—
eyes make a most
eloquent sermon


Erasure haiku derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Sunday 9 March 1661/62.
