The illustration is shaped like a backwwards L, a rectangle with a missing smaller rectangle at upper left where the poem was. It’s a picture of a person kneeling, wearing a cape or shawl over a spotted full-length dress and mediæval-style pointy slippers; there’s a candle burning behind them. I think it is a woman at prayer: her hands are clasped and eyes are lifted up. But it could be someone male, as the hair s fairly short.
