The poem in this work comes from Rudyard Kipling's 'The white seal' in The Second Jungle Book, where it is described by Kipling as a 'sort of very sad seal National Anthem'. This lament, sung by the seals when they are heading back to their beaches in the summer, tells of the seal-rookeries and the coming of the sealers to cull them.
