    Count That Day Lost

    by 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.
