Poems that Inspire the Soul

Poems That Inspire

~Count That Day Lost~ George Eliot

If you sit down at set of sun

And count the acts that you have done, And, counting, find

One self-denying deed, one word

That eased the heart of him who heard, One glance most kind

That fell like sunshine where it went- Then you may count that day well spent.

But if, through all the livelong day, You’ve cheered no heart, by yea or nay- If, through it all

You’ve nothing done that you can trace That brought the sunshine to one face- No act most small

That helped some soul and nothing cost- Then count that day as worse than lost.
