‘By night we linger’d on the lawn’

‘By night we linger’d on the lawn’ by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

By night we linger’d on the lawn,
For underfoot the herb was dry;
And genial warmth; and o’er the sky
The silvery haze of summer drawn;

And bats went round in fragrant skies,
And wheel’d or lit the filmy shapes
That haunt the dusk, with ermine capes
And woolly breasts and beaded eyes;

Evocative words. Beautiful!  Our little furry flying friends are still in need of help: the weather is not helping them prepare for the winter months ahead.
