Quote of the Day (Edna St. Vincent Millay, on ‘Autumn Daybreak’)

“Tardy, and somewhat south of east,
The sun will rise at length, made known
More by the meagre light increased
Than by a disk in splendour shown;

“When, having but to turn my head,
Through the stripped maple I shall see,
Bleak and remembered, patched with red,
The hill all summer hid from me.”—American poet Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950), “Autumn Daybreak,” in Collected Lyrics (1969)
