Byron’s Pool, Grantchester.


Pen and crayon. 3"x5"

Lord Byron is reputed to have bathed here when he was a student at Trinity College, Cambridge. Now it’s dominated by a weir in which various bits of floating rubbish churn themselves to a presumed oblivion. The  poet, if he were here, would no doubt take one glance and shuffle off to Geneva or Como. Especially since his birthday is tomorrow.
