Jan. 22

I knew that Lord Byron was born on Jan. 22, my birthday--and Sir Francis Bacon, too. But I didn't know what Byron had written on his 33rd birthday... in 1818...

Through life's road so dim and dirty,
I have dragged to three and thirty.
And what have these years left to me?
Nothing except thirty-three.

Strindberg was also born on Jan. 22.
