John Keats: Trivia

My day off. Woke up late (didn't go to bed until 3:30 am, so it's excusable), read a little, installed a new light fixture in the dining room. The old one went out a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't been home much, so the wife and kids have been eating supper in the dark. Anyway, I've been reading some in Keats today, and found this little piece that I enjoyed much, published under the heading Trivia:
I am as brisk
As a bottle of Wisk-
Ey and as nimble
As a Milliner's thimble.


  1. Yes, and now another day off today--and I find out in a few minutes whether I have to go in tomorrow. If not, my honey-do list is waiting for me.
