Salutation to the dawn

Look to this day
for this is life, the very life of life.
In it’s brief course
lie all the verities and realities of your existence –
the bliss of growth
the glory of action
the splendour of achievement.
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.
