Night tripper

So up, and to the Office till noon, and then home to a little dinner, and thither again till night, mighty busy, to my great content, doing a great deal of business, and so home to supper, and to bed; I finding this day that I may be able to do a great deal of business by dictating, if I do not read myself, or write, without spoiling my eyes, I being very well in my eyes after a great day’s work.

o little hit
again doing a great deal
of finding

I do not read
myself in my eyes
after a day’s work

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Wednesday 3 February 1669.
