Start The Day With A Smile
Poem By Thaddeus Capek
Start the day with a smile.
Make everything worthwhile.
Live this day the best you can;
For it will never come again.
Say a little prayer now and then
and now be good to all men.
Today banish all sorrows
and make good to all tomorrows.
Let your works shine before men
And so you can say "Amen."
Toil in all kinds of weather.
Be kind to sister and brother.
May your joys be so plenty
That they glory you immensely.
"You shall know them by their fruits,"
Be they animals or bruts.
Your sufferings are not in vain
Even though they cause you some pain.
Live by the sweat of your brow.
Live happily then and now.
