Prospect Cottage, Home of Director, Derek Jarman (1942-1994)

A poem on the black wooden wall of the cottage is from John Donne’s poem The Sun Rising:

The Sun Rising

Busy old fool, unruly Sun,

Why does thou thus,

Through windows and through curtains call on us?

Must to thy motions lovers’ seasons run?
