Robert Frost

But bid life seize the present?
It lives less in the present
Than in the future always,
And less in both together

Is too much for the senses,
Too crowding, too confusing -
Too present to imagine.


Leave off asking what tomorrow will bring, and
whatever days fortune will give, count them
as profit.
