Poetry Friday: Memorials of a Tour in Scotland

How disappeared He?--ask the newt and toad,
Inheritors of his abode;
The otter crouching undisturbed,
In her dank cleft;--but be thou curbed,
O froward Fancy! 'mid a scene
Of aspect winning and serene;
For those offensive creatures shun
The inquisition of the sun!
And in this region flowers delight,
And all is lovely to the sight.

-- Memorials of a Tour in Scotland 1814, The Brownie's Cell, Part VIII by William Wordsworth

If you live in California and love sea otters as much as I do, consider contributing to the California Sea Otter Fund. Look for it on the CA Tax Form (PDF File)
