Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn--An Uplifting Sanskrit Poem by Kalidasa

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn! 

By Kalidasa, 5th century Sanskrit poet

Listen to the Exhortation of 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 of the Dawn!

Sue, I have always loved that poem but had no idea about its author. I always learn something new from your posts! Had to Pin this one, not just for the poem but for your lovely colorful heart design with a positive message.
