Upper Gévaudan (continued)
The bed was made, the room was fit,
By punctual eve the stars were lit;
The air was still, the water ran;
No need there was for maid or man,
When we put up, my ass and I,
At God’s green caravanserai.
--Old Play[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. A poem by Robert Louis Stevenson called "A Camp".[1], later published in Underwoods (1887), a collection of poetry. He pretends to quote from an "Old Play", following a custom of Sir Walter Scott.
