TO-MORROW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: One walks secure in wisdom-trodden ways
Last Line: If he but knew the help that's near?


ONE walks secure in wisdom-trodden ways
That lead to peaceful nights through happy days --
Health, fame, friends, children, and a gentle wife,
All Youth can covet or Experience praise,
And Use withal to crown the ease of life.
Ah, thirsting for another day,
How dread the fear
If he but knew the danger near!

Another, with some old inheritance
Of Fate, unmitigated yet by Chance, --
Condemned by those he loves, with no appeal
To his own fearful heart, that ever pants
For newer circlings of the cruel Wheel!
Ah, thirsting for another day,
What need of fear
If he but knew the help that's near?
