Poetry Friday: Today

I need more time. Badly. Lots more time. For books. For dog-walking. For cooking. For hugging feet with my guy on the couch. Why don’t I seem to have enough time for those things? Here’s a little poem about seizing the moment.

Today – by Thomas Carlyle

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 forever
From all eyes is hid.
