Walter Savage Landor much preferred to write in Latin – “I am sometimes at a loss for an English word, for a Latin never” he was quoted – and always in classical styles (epigrams, quatrains, etc.). I present to you one of his quatrains in English (my Latin not being what it could be). For a fuller debate on Mr. Landor’s legacy, I recommend the lengthy biography on The Poetry Foundation’s website. His long life as an English gentleman of leisure is pretty far removed from my own – but I did find one bit of connection – he was once the owner and occupant of Llanthony Priory, a set of 13th century ruins located in Monmouthshire, UK. I recently visited there and had a drink at the pub in the basement after a 10 mile hike! Drawing (ink on paper) and composition by me.
