Crowned by the rising sun this Hindu text called either 'Salutation of the Dawn' or 'Exaltation of the Dawn' can be used as a meditation.

A complete verse can be found here and here , where it is attributed to Kalidasa, an Indian Dramatist.

Carpe Diem, seize the day!

'Look to this day;
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation of the dawn.'
