The Day’s Portion!
Broken and small and divided into fragments,
We can bear them;
Only the care and the work of each day have to be undertaken.
The day’s portion in its day.
The rest of the night fits us for
Making a fresh start with each new morning.
The mistakes of the past can be avoided, its lessons improved.
And we have only each day to be faithful for the one short day,
And long years and a long life take care of themselves,
Without the sense of
Their length or their weight ever being a burden.
