Poem of the day
Ballade Of The Midnight Forest
by Andrew Lang
Still sing the mocking fairies, as of old,
Beneath the shade of thorn and holly-tree;
The west wind breathes upon them, pure and cold,
And wolves still dread Diana roaming free
In secret woodland with her company.

When now the wolds are bathed in silver light,
And first the moonrise breaks the dusky grey,

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
