A Poem That a Sangha Member Likes, and so do I

May 2011 was the 150th anniversary of the Indian poet Tagore. I have just been reading this poem which I thought was apt for us:

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 Splendour 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 To-morrow
A Vision of Hope.
Look well to this Day.

With metta
