To-Morrow
by Lillian E. Curtis


To-day we will banish all care,
And from our hearts all sorrow,
To-day we will rest and be gay,
And pay for it all to-morrow.

To morrow is to-day's advocate,
And he proves a faithful one,
For much is deferred till to-morrow,
That should to-day be done.

Think not of it to-day,
Why useless trouble borrow?
There's time enough to do it in,
We'll think of it to-morrow.

And the advocate still pleads,
And on he lures his victims thus,
Till we find alas "too late,"
That to-morrow has ruined us.
