London by William Blake.jpeg


This poem is not exactly ‘cheery’, but it is one of my favourite works by William Blake.


I scrawled it on a sheet taken from a ‘WH Smith’ A4 pad of wide-lined 70gsm paper.


The pen is a Parker Vector with the ‘F’ nib of a calligraphy set.
I don’t perceive it as being particularly ‘Fine’.

On the other hand, at least it is ‘wet’ enough to lay down enough of this ink (Waterman ‘Havana’) to make me perceive it as being a shade of ‘brown’.

Recommended Comments

The Victorinox ‘Swiss Card’ features in this photograph only because its bevelled ‘ruler’ edge served as a really good way to prop-up the Vector so that its ‘chunky’ arrow clip was visible.
