Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the varieties
And realities of your existence;
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendour of beauty,
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day.
Such is the salvation of the dawn.
