Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair ...

You may be surprised at what it was that has caused me to quote Shelley in the title of this thread:

On the first day of Wimbledon we were amused at the invasion of Centre Court by a small bird – a blue tit. It hopped and cavorted, not in the least perturbed by the furious activity of the two giants of the game. A picture on the front page of The Times on the 30th June showed Djokovic – an Ozymandias ineed -  in a pose before the little creature that was almost an obeisance.

Well, I suppose in another year the little bird will be gone – a victim of winter or predator. And who cares? I never really took the Gospel of St Matthew 10:29-31 too seriously ...
