Thought for the Day

To live with ugliness, we must hallow loveliness
the more, remembering that it often springs
from mud into light-filled air.
~ Dr Judith Farr
Quoted in Emily Langer, "Judith Farr, Scholar of Emily Dickinson and Poet in Her Own Right, Dies at 85," The Washington Post, June 23, 2021  (The excerpt is from Farr's poem "What Lies Beyond" in What Lies Beyond: Poems (Deerbrook Editions, 2019).)
