You and To-Day by Ella Wheeler Wilcox With every rising of the sun Think of your life as just begun. The past has shrived and buried deep All yesterdays - there let them sleep, Nor seek to summon back one ghost Of that innumerable host. Concern yourself with but to-day; Woo it and teach it to obey Your wish and will. Since time began To-day has been the friend of man. But in his blindness and his sorrow He looks to yesterday and to-morrow. You and to-day! a soul sublime And the great pregnant hour of time. With God between to bind the train, Go forth, I say - attain - attain.
