Salutation to the Dawn

Look to this day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.

In its brief course lie all the
Verities 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 salutation to the dawn.
