The Building Accounts of the
Savoy Hospital was founded by King
Henry VII and was one of the landmarks
of early Tudor London. It was unique in
its use of a cross-shaped ward, but the
structural details remained obscure until
this account, edited by Dr. Charlotte A.
Stanford (Brigham Young University),
of the building accounts records. These
records show the detail of the structure as
well as the lives of the people who built it.

It is not recovery: No way to lure coastline
back into place, recall silt
already gone to Gulf.
More like conception,
lift piles of christmas trees
into air, drop them
in bundles along the marsh line.
Reeds will grow
in soil trapped here.
Shrimp will hide
as these ponds fill in,
ducks will land in flocks
to feed. All new gifts
against the water’s need.
