Salutation of the Dawn


Listen to the exhortation of 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 glory of action – the bliss of growth
the splendor 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 of the dawn.
(I copied this into my journal ages ago from something I was reading and neglected to write the source.)
