"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

22 February 2020


I have liv'd long enough for others, 
Like the Dog in the Wheel, 
And it is now the Season to begin for myself: 
I cannot change that Thing call'd Time, 
But I can alter its Posture and, 
As Boys do turn a looking-glass against the Sunne, 
So I will dazzle you all.

Peter Ackroyd, From Hawksmoor
