Leon
Robert Southey (1774–1843)
 
(From Written on Christmas Day, 1795)

                    A WEARY traveller now
I journey o’er the desert mountain track
Of Leon: wilds all drear and comfortless,
Where the gray lizards in the noontide sun,
Sport on their rocks, and where the goatherd starts,        5
Roused from his midnight sleep, and shakes to hear
The wolf’s loud yell, and falters as he calls
On saints to save.
