Working classic

All the morning at home among my workmen. At noon Mr. Creed and I went to the ordinary behind the Exchange, where we lately were, but I do not like it so well as I did. So home with him and to the office, where we sat late, and he did deliver his accounts to us.
The office being done I went home and took pleasure to see my work draw to an end.

all morning among men
ordinary as ice

where we live to see work
draw to an end

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Monday 13 May 1661.
