Solitude

Another Place at Sunset - Crosby Beach, Liverpool; home of the Antony Gormley art installation of Iron Men

Another Place at Sunset – Crosby Beach, Liverpool; home of the Antony Gormley art installation of Iron Men

But when sorrows more oppress,
When the world brings more distress,
Wishing to despise as then
Brunts of fate, and scorn of men;
When fate’s demons thus intrude,
Then I seek thee, Solitude,

from “Solitude”  by John Clare
