As Joseph Severn (who now rests beside him) assured him, it is a peaceful beuutiful place, and he is surrounded by shady trees, near an ancient pyramid and cats wander the graveyard. As you may know, Shelley is not far away, and we visited his grave too.
It was wonderful to reflect on the fact that his name has not, as he feared, been writ in water that there are fresh flowers by his tomb, obviously put there by admirers, as well as lipstick marks on his stone! I am not a religious person either but if his spirit exists on another realm he must be reassured and delighted. It is just such a pity he never lived to see how famous and loved he would become.
