Thursday Ap 8

Schools. An amende honourable1 by Louis MacNeice in a Spectator review of Troy. Dirt by one Shawn Taylor in New Statesman.[RG]
In the afternoon a walk beyond Gentillino to Montagnola in hot sun: villas some good some bad mixed views, lots of flowers.
Tried to work out a poem on the way, but no good.
Another draft of A Wounded Man.
Checked some of Laura's Collected Poems.
It occurred to me The Fox did not eat the sour grapes; so his children's teeth were not set on edge.
