Tomorrow is Today



 This is the day the Lord has made;We will rejoice and be glad in it. Ps.118:24

We slept; hours crept, swept swift-slow
Straight-forward slur, soft they
Tiptoe-tumbled; and now, somehow
Tomorrow is today

Yester-today that brimmed, will-wild
No one can ever find
It slumbers where many a child
Left childhood days behind

The font of want and wish and wait
And hope and fear and dread
And faith, frames a gossamer gate
With time’s tomorrow-thread

Still, in its strange, mysterious par
Twixt dusk and dawn’s relay
Time draws through night’s wish-world of stars
From tomorrow, today
