I love old maps as they are a great source of imagining.


Maps

The world was given to Phyllis Sterne
In 1906, by her school for doing well,
This is what we can learn,
By reading the dedication we can tell
That she was in the third form,
That she won a prize,
But we can only surmise
Whether she was day or dorm;
Now she is either very old or dead,
Changed like the Empire once imperial red.
