New Day A Dawn


Lord, please give me strength
For the new day I see
The old day now gone
Also the strength I need

I know in the future
A different day will dawn
For the old is now taken
Yesterday is gone

Tomorrow is new
Yesterday is old
The assurance of a second
No promise is sold

So look up to heaven
And ask for strength
For time now left
No matter the length

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
