It's Christopher Smart's birthday! Or it was, yesterday, when I meant to post this. Most people know For I Will Consider My Cat Jeoffry, which is excellent. I will confess that always closest to my heart is the following couplet:
Of all Spring's blossoms I like best
My sunlit wife, herself sun-dressed.
We were just reading For I Will Consider two or three days ago, in honor of Alcibiades, whom we found in the park last Sunday and have since brought home with us, to great general merriment. I love that poem.Post a Comment
