    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.
