Quote of the Day

Much have I travelled in the realms of gold
for which I thank the Paddington and Westminster
Public Libraries: and I have never said sir
to anyone since I was seventeen years old.
Peter Porter (1929 - )
Australian-born British poet and critic.
The first line alludes to John Keats's sonnet, "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer" (1816).
The Last of England, "The Sanitized Sonnets: 4"
