Day's Portion

Day's Portion

Day’s Portion

Broken small and divided into fragments, he can bear them;

Only the care and the work of each day have to be undertaken –

The day’s portion in its day.

The rest of the night fits him for making a fresh start with each new morning;

The mistakes of the past can be avoided, its lessons improved.

And he has only each day to be faithful for the one short day,

And long years and a long life take care of themselves,

Without the sense of their length or their weight ever being a burden.
