Quote of the Day (John Keats, on ‘The Poetry of Earth’ in Winter)

“The poetry of earth is ceasing never:   
  On a lone winter evening, when the frost    
    Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills   
The Cricket’s song, in warmth increasing ever,   
  And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,   
    The Grasshopper’s among some grassy hills.” —English poet John Keats (1795-1821), “On the Grasshopper and Cricket,” Dec. 30, 1816, reprinted in The Complete Poems of John Keats (1994)
