The Annotated 'Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes'/Upper Gévaudan (continued)
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
- ↑ A poem by Robert Louis Stevenson called "A Camp"., later published in Underwoods (1887), a collection of poetry. He pretends to quote from an "Old Play", following a custom of Sir Walter Scott.
