Come thou of the fair smooth pages stitched together...
Bring with thee, as thou comest, my pen-case, ready, clean, brilliant,
filled with sharp dart-like pens, limber-tipped, firm, newly trimmed.
Bring likewise paper and cushion under my hand, whence writing
is to percolate upon the smooth slope of the leaf, a fine script,
jet-black, uniform.
