"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

@Thijn asked me a question this morning. He asked: "How can I get an answer-badge?' I said that he could only get it by answering a question. Then he asked me where to find questions. I had to admit there's no question to be answered at the moment. In the question game you answer questions with questions, but when you really want to give an answer, it's not possible anywhere. How would you solve this problem?
