English Poem “One By One The Sands Are Flowing” of poet Adelaide Anne Procter complete poem with summery for Students.

One By One The Sands Are Flowing
Adelaide Anne Procter

One by one the sands are flowing,
One by one the moments fall:
Some are coming, some are going;
Do not strive to grasp them all.

One by one thy duties wait thee;
Let thy whole strength go to each;
Let no future dreams elate thee;
Learn thou first what these can teach.

One by one,-bright gifts of heaven,-
Joys are sent thee here below;
Take them readily when given;
Ready be to let them go.

One by one thy griefs shall meet thee;
Do not fear an armed band;
One will fade as others greet thee,
Shadows passing through the land.

Every hour that fleets so slowly
Has its task to do our bear:
Luminous the crown and holy,
When each gem is set with care.

Hours are golden links, God’s token
Reaching heaven; but one by one
Take them, lest the chain be broken
Ere the pilgrimage be done.
