By that remembered or with that forgot
is the last line of a poem by Lord Byron,
an untitled poem where he expresses the desire that
nothing but his name and dates shall be written on his tombstone
for if more than that would be needed for people to remember him
he’d rather be forgotten.
I borrow it here because that’s how I feel about my work.
This blog is not about me but the words I’ve written.
As an author I am the words I write.
Should that not be enough to earn it recognition
may it wither away in obscurity
and I along with it.
