Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendour of achievement
Are but the experiences of time
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow only a vision,
But today well lived makes every yesterday
A dream of happiness
And tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
From the Sanskrit (read by Poppa Will at your christening)
May this grove of trees symbolise your growth and your life. Let's go and see it together one day.
With best love
Poppa Will and Mumma Bill
