Ralph Waldo Emerson
grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh,
to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect or
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish everyday and be done
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit to be encumbered
with your old nonsense.
