An assemblage of another time captured in a small vintage tin, which is 16 cm long, 12 cm wide when closed and 24 cm when open.

A small vintage tin, the front of the tin has been washed with acrylic paints which create atmosphere. Also on the front of the tin to introduce it, is the title and author of the poem which can be found inside. Alongside this beautiful poem, the words "My Delight" are embroidered on a midnight blue silk. On the other side of the tin hangs a small delicate dress which adds mystery. The bodice of the dress has been made from book papers and the skirt from silk and cottons.

Robert Bridges
My Delight and Thy Delight
MY delight and thy delight
Walking, like two angels white,
In the gardens of the night:

My desire and thy desire
Twining to a tongue of fire,
Leaping live, and laughing higher:

Thro' the everlasting strife
In the mystery of life.

Love, from whom the world begun,
Hath the secret of the sun.

Love can tell, and love alone,
Whence the million stars were strewn,
Why each atom knows its own,
How, in spite of woe and death,
Gay is life, and sweet is breath:

This he taught us, this we knew,
Happy in his science true,
Hand in hand as we stood
'Neath the shadows of the wood,
Heart to heart as we lay
In the dawning of the day.
