Quote of the Day (Lewis Carroll, on the Changing Seasons)

“In winter, when the fields are white,
I sing this song for your delight -

“In spring, when woods are getting green,
I'll try and tell you what I mean.

“In summer, when the days are long,
Perhaps you'll understand the song:

“In autumn, when the leaves are brown,
Take pen and ink, and write it down.”— Children’s book author and mathematician Charles L. Dodgson, a.k.a. Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), “Humpty Dumpty's Recitation,” in Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871)
