The mild Cape Town winter weather

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is approaching winter here in the Cape (South Africa) . Table Mountain (a World Heritage Site) is covered in beautiful flora. Fires are often the result of carelessness by people using the nature trails. It takes many years for the full splendor of the flora to come into its own again. It is an appeal for all to take care not to damage the environment when they are enjoying nature.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
