Stands Still The Clock at Ten to Three?
Stands Still The Clock at Ten to Three?
The pub here has changed its name to celebrate Rupert Brooke and his poem “The old Vicarage Grantchester” see LinkExternal link It was written in the Café des Westens Berlin in 1912 whilst Brooke was recovering from illness. Brooke, renowned as a “war poet” only wrote six sonnets about the war after a limited engagement near Antwerp. The penultimate line of the poem “stands still the church clock at ten to three” has a bit of poetic licence as Mym's photo of the church TL4355 : Grantchester church attests there is no sign of it ever having had a clock! I wonder if a memory of a finger post like this one was the inspiration for the fourth verse?
