  • Fred Jesson : [playing the crossword puzzle]  You're a poetry addict. See if you can help me over this. It's Keats. 'When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face / Huge cloudy symbols of a high _______.' Something that's seven letters.

    Laura Jesson : Romance, I think. I'm almost sure it is. 'Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance.' It will be in the Oxford Book of English Verse.

    Fred Jesson : No, it's right I'm sure. It fits in with 'delirium' and 'Baluchistan.

  • Fred Jesson : Come and sit by the fire in the library and relax. You may help me with the Times crossword.

    Laura Jesson : You have the most peculiar ideas of relaxation.
