Excerpt from: 

RESOLUTIONS FOR THE DAY

To rise in the morning and drink in the view –
    The home where I dwell in the vale,
The blossoms whose fragrance and charms ever new
    Are scattered o’er hillside and dale;

To gaze on sunbeams enkindling the sky –
    A loftier life to invite –
A light that illumines my spiritual eye,
    An inspires my pen as I write;

To form resolutions, with strength from on high,
    Such physical laws to obey,
As reason with appetite, pleasures deny,
    That health may my efforts repay;

To kneel at the altar of mercy and pray
    That pardon and grace, through His Son,
May comfort my soul all the wearisome day,
    And cheer me with hope when ’tis done;
