Quote of the Day (Kathryn Hunt, on Babies’ ‘Soft Octaves of Wonder’)

“All through the night, all through the
drug-spangled rapture of my dreams,
I heard the newborn babies sing,
first one, then another. The fierce
beginning of their lament, that bright hiss,
those soft octaves of wonder.”—"The Newborns" by Kathryn Hunt, from Long Way Through Ruin (2013)
