Stanzas in the Zoological Gardens (To the White Bear during the Late Weather)





Zoological Gardens, Zoology, Animal Behaviour, Heat

    Given the recent hot weather, envies the polar bear for being 'polarised at [its] own Pole'. Notes that other bears have a pole which they can climb, but that however hard they might try to ascend the pole 'They'd into bear's grease melt and run / With such an effort this hot day'.
