Quote of the Day for 2016-01-22

"It is absurd to think that the only way to tell if a poem is lasting is to wait and see if it lasts. The right reader of a good poem can tell the moment it strikes him that he has taken an immortal wound—that he will never get over it."

Robert Frost (1875-1963) "The Poetry of Amy Lowell," Christian Science Monitor, May 16, 1925

Erato, Muse of Poetry by Edward Poynter (1870)
