Today ~ Poem by Thomas Carlyle

Today

So here hath been dawning Another blue day;
Think, wilt thou let it Slip useless away?
Out of Eternity
This new day is born;
Into Eternity,
At night will return.
Behold it aforetime No eye ever did; So soon it for ever
From all eyes is hid.
Here hath been dawning Another blue day;
Think, wilt thou let it Slip useless away?

Thomas Carlyle.
