Today's Beautiful Gem: `The Year Ahead' by Horatio Nelson Powers

"A Flower unblown: a Book unread:
A Tree with fruit unharvested:
A Path untrod: a House whose rooms
Lack yet the heart's divine perfumes:
A Landscape whose wide border lies
In silent shade 'neath silent skies:
A wondrous Fountain yet unsealed:
A Casket with its gifts concealed--
This is the Year that for you waits
Beyond To-morrow's mystic gates."

Om Saantih! Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao
