Lord Byron's Darkness

Caption: 

To get us all in the mood for this evening's festivities, here's a reading of "Darkness," a poem written by Lord Byron in 1816, also known as the Year Without a Summer because Mount Tambora in the Dutch East Indies had erupted the previous year, throwing ash into the atmosphere that blocked the sun and caused abnormal weather patterns across northeast America and northern Europe. Happy Halloween!
