  Morning Prayer  


Let me to-day do something that shall take
     A little sadness from the world's vast store,
And may I be so favoured as to make
     Of joy's too scanty sum a little more
Let me not hurt, by any selfish deed
     Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend;
Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need,
     Or sin by silence when I should defend.
However meagre be my worldly wealth,
     Let me give something that shall aid my. kind -
A word of courage, or a thought of health,
     Dropped as I pass for troubled hearts to find.
Let me to-night look back across the span
     'Twixt dawn and dark, and to my conscience say -
Because of some good act to beast or man -
     "The world is better that I lived to-day."

       - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
