Quote of the Day (John Clare, on ‘The Bitterest Day That Ever Blew’)

“And in the bitterest day that ever blew
The walk will find some places still and warm
Where dead leaves rustle sweet and give alarm
To little birds that flirt and start away.”— John Clare (1793-1864), from “Winter Walk,” from The Four Seasons: Poems, edited by J.D. McClatchy (2008)
