First Line: A record of the inward world, whose facts
Last Line: On such these records linger.
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia
Subject(s): Diaries


A record of the inward world, whose facts
Are thoughts -- and feelings -- fears, and hopes, and dreams.
There are some days that might outmeasure years --
Days that obliterate the past, and make
The future of the colour which they cast.
A day may be a destiny; for life
Lives in but little -- but that little teems
With some one chance, the balance of all time:
A look -- a word -- and we are wholly changed.
We marvel at ourselves -- we would deny
That which is working in the hidden soul;
But the heart knows and trembles at the truth:
On such these records linger.
