Quote of the day 10th October 2021

"The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,

    The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea,

The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,

    And leaves the world to darkness and to me."


(Thomas Grey, first verse of his "Elegy written in a country churchyard," published 1751. The contemporary illustration below is by William Blake.)
