"DAY unto DAY

Let me live my life from day unto day
In a friendly, self-forgetful way,
With a handclasp warm and a friendly smile
For the folks I meet on the daily mile.

Let me dream my dreams un a garden fair
With a beauty-fragrance everywhere
With a place to dip in crystal springs
The opening heart of lovely things. 

Let me live rightly -- from day to day
In that friendly, self-forgetful way,
With a time for work and a time for play
And a place for dreams in the busy day.
~ Ellen E. Larson"
