The Window Called Today


Through the window of the present
All my life must come to me!
Freedom, happiness and friendship
These great beauties I shall see!
Only as they near my casement;
Then my heart must bid them stay,
For God’s blessings always enter
Through the window called today.

Care my cast a fleeting shadow
On my precious windowpane,
But I know that sunshine gathers
Added splendour from the rain;
So, I find that each glad morning
Life is glorious and gay,
As it greets my eager spirit
Through the window called today.

–Lawrence Hawthorne
