DAILY POEM

"Art thou in misery, brother? Then I pray be comforted. Thy grief will pass away.

"Art thou elated? Ah, be not so gay; temper thy joy: this, too, shall pass away!

"Art thou in danger? Still let reason sway, and cling to hope: this, too, shall pass away.

"Tempted art thou? In all thine anguish lay one truth to heart: this, too, shall pass away.

"Do rays of loftier glory round thee play? King-like art thou? This, too, shall pass away!

"What'er thou art, where'er thy footsteps stray, heed these wise words: 'This, too, shall pass away!'"

--Paul Hamilton Hayne
