A Timely Thought


Too soon the future is the present
And the present is the past
So grasp those fleeting moments
And try ot make them last
For the future is but speculation
The past a memory - bad or good-
The present is our only time
To do the things we should.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
