A SONNET FOR TODAY
A brand new day: This life's most precious swatch;
A doorway to the world they've yet to see;
An unusual page; another golden notch;
A challenge and an opportunity.
As she goes forth, this day, to meet her fate,
She wonders what surprise awaits her there.
Though fear and danger lurk outside her gate,
She shall persist and she will not despair.
Today she shall be constant in pursuit
Of lofty goals and fondest heart's desire.
With courage, work and confidence to boot,
She can succeed in all that she aspires.
With Love's help, she will seize this blessed day
And send misfortune on its wretched way.
