Helen Lowrie Marshall



Helen Lowrie Marshall was considered one of the best poets of the twentieth century. Her poetry is about enjoying what you are given.

"Tomorrow does not stand apart,
A shining, all new day;
Tomorrow is a thing slow-built
Of hours passed away.

It's made of dreams your heart has stored,
And dreams discarded, too;
It's made of all the joys and tears
The years brought you.

It's made of lessons you have learned,
The friends you've known--the foes;
As each of our Todays is bent,
So our tomorrow grows.

It's made of sweat and toil and pain
And song and love and laughter;
Each minute of Today helps build
The day that follows after.

Tomorrow does not spring full-built
With some new dawn's bright rays--
Tomorrow is a slow built thing
Made up of yesturdays."

-Helen Lowrie
