The Psalm Of Life

Rating: 3.5
What the heart of the young man said to the psalmist
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!--
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.

It is a very beautiful poem written by the great poet, H.W.Longfellow. The lines 'Trust no future however pleasant Let the death Past bury its death Act, -act in the living present Heart within and God overhead' teaches us to live and act in the present.It teaches us to think neither of the future nor the past but to act in the present for it is in the present time that we still have time to do something.The poem further teaches us to have faith in God and to do our duty by putting our heart and soul.
