Quote of the Day (Thomas Hardy, on a Snowy Cemetery)

“The tripletime beat
Bounds forth on the snow,
But the spry springing feet
Of a century ago,
And the arms that enlaced
As the couples embraced,
Are silent old bones
Under graying gravestones.”—English poet-novelist Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), from “Music in a Snowy Street,” in Hardy: Poems (Everyman’s Library, Pocket Poets Series, 1985)
