  • After having spent an hour or so with WORDSWORTH'S sonnets I found my head so full of his sonorous adjuratory music that when in the middle of the night I woke as usual -- from three to four is the worst time -- my wooing of reluctant sleep took on a new fashion, and instead of repeating verses I made them.
