Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lies
All the realities and verities of existence,
The bliss of growth,
The splendor of action,
The glory of power -
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today, well lived,
Makes yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
