A Chill

Rating: 2.8

What can lambkins do
All the keen night through?
Nestle by their woolly mother
The careful ewe.


What can nestlings do
In the nightly dew?
Sleep beneath their mother's wing
Till day breaks anew.

Nature has provided warm and comfortable places for sleep to lambkins and nestlings and the desire for getting such a place is in itself superb. A well deserved classic poem of the Day.

rossetti expresses here something i—and many, of course—have wondered about—how do creatures, especially in cold winter conditions, survive outdoors? and being who we are, we can't help relating this to ourselves. -gk
