4.Today And Tomorrow

                                                                                                                                – J.E.Carpenter

Poem  –

 Don’t Tell me of tomorrow

Give me the man who’ll say

That , when a good deed today

‘Let’s do the  deed today.’

We may all command the present ,

If we act and never wait,

But repentance is the  phantom

Of a past that comes too late!

Don’t tell me  of tomorrow

There is much to do to-day

That  can never be  accomplished,

If we throw the hours away .

Every moment has  its duty,

Who the  future can foretell ?

Then whu put off till tomorrow

What today can do as well?
