On This Day...

On March 26, 1858, British poet and classicist A.E. Houseman was born.
"Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide."
--from The Shropshire Lad--
Robert Frost was born on this day in 1874.
Joseph Campbell, scholar of mythology and comparative religion that was a mythical inspiration for George Lucas' Star Wars films, was born on this day, 1906.
