"28 Jan -- 3 o'clock Mor -- drawn to keep me awake -- a deadly sweat was on him all this night."
Joseph Severn

A little less than one month left. . . .
"But if you will fully love me, though there may be some fire, 'twill not be more than we can bear when moistened and bedewed with Pleasures." JK to FB 08.07.1819

Yes it's that time of the year again for Remembrance.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

Peter Sanson, 1995.

But don't you (we) remember all things (Keatsian) all year?
