LitBirthdays October 2013 – Week 4

“O blacke Night! as folk in bookes read
That shapen art by God, this world to hide,
At certain times, with thy darke weed,
That under it men might in rest abide,
Well oughte beastes plain, and folke chide,
That where as Day with labour would us brest,
There thou right flee’st, and deignest not us rest.”

[Excerpt from Troilus and Crisyde by Geoffrey Chaucer, born October 25]
