To-Day

 

To-Day.

—————

SO here hath been dawning
Another blue day!
Think, wilt thou let it
Slip useless away?

Out of eternity
This new day is born.
Into eternity
At night will return.

Behold it aforetime,
No eye ever did;
So soon it forever
From all eyes is hid.

Here hath been dawning
Another blue day,
Think, wilt thou let it
Slip useless away?

—Thomas Carlyle.

A tip o’the hat to Nature & Nature’s God.
