The Long Day Is About To Begin

THE LONG DAY IS ABOUT TO BEGIN

The long day is about to begin
Where it will lead me I do not know
I am not as well as I would be
I must forget in the course of the day
Many disappointments-
And act if this day were an adventure
Whose meaning is real-

The light of the morning will soon come
And change everything
For a time
Into more light-

But the day will be long
And I will tire
And pray at its close
Only to sleep-

And now I must begin somehow
Some way.
