This is my favorite poem from my 4th grade Persian textook book. This gem of a poem by Golchin Gilani can still be found in today's textbooks and most school kids have it memorized as we did back then. The original poem is somewhat longer. We all need to be reminded from time to time of the uplitting finale:
Hear me O my child, In the eyes of tomorrow, life — at times dreary, at times bright — is beautiful, is beautiful, is beautiful.
