Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

William Morris

Rondel

Behold the works of William Morris,
   Epics, and here and there wall-papery,
   Mild, mooney, melancholy vapoury
A sort of Chaucer minus Horace.

Spun out like those of William Loris,
   Who wrote of amorous red-tapery,
Behold the works of William Morris,
   Epics, and here and there wall-papery!

Long ladies, knights, and earls and choris-
   ters in the most appropriate drapery,
   Samite and silk and spotless napery,
Sunflowers and apple blossoms and orris,
Behold the works of William Morris!

anonymous, circa. 1880

Happy birthday to a design icon.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
