Bit of a late poem of the month!

“But the seafowl is gone to her nest,
The beast is laid down in his lair;
Even here is a season of rest,
And I to my cabin repair.
There is mercy in every place,
And mercy, encouraging thought!
Gives even affliction a grace
And reconciled man to his lot.”
– ‘The solitude of Alexander Selkirk’ by W.Cowper.
