In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

With the summers coming in and heat reaching the highest levels, you might be looking for a place to blow off steam and just cool down with a fun day with your friends. What could be better than going to the water park or the beach to start playing around in the water and maybe even bringing out your inner athlete and indulging in the various water sports that you always wanted to take part in?

One of the most iconic watersports that you have most definitely heard of is surfing. Starting your day with an early morning surf at the beach is an incredible way to keep you active for the rest of your evening. If you don’t know how to surf then you could take lessons at one of the many coastal companies at the beach or you could try one of the other sports that seem more your type.

If you’re not a huge fan of getting a thrilling rush in the water then maybe you could try kayaking which is brilliant for calmer waters and lagoons. It might not be the fastest sport but it is great for developing your upper body strength. Once you’re confident with your kayak you could make things more challenging by taking it to more rapidly flowing waters and see if you can maneuver around them.

If you want your sport to be something that also allows you to see the beauty of the world under the sea, then you might want to pick snorkeling. It is a fun way that you could spend time with your friends or family and you need little to no experience before you can learn it. You just need to know how to swim and how to breathe through a mask and you were good to go.
