Salutation to the Dawn

“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 splendor of beauty.

For yesterday is but a dream
and tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived makes every
yesterday a dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day!
Such is the salutation to the dawn.”

-Kālidāsa
