Salvation Of The Dawn... - Poem by Jeffery Doute

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 Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

    dawn is indeed wonderful
    giving the heart
    a pure promise
    for the wonders of the day
    and all the day has to offer
    a fine poem
