A commonplace life, we say and we sigh,
But why do we sigh as we say?
The commonplace sun in the commonplace sky
Makes up the commonplace day.
The moon and the stars are commonplace things,
And the flower that blooms and the bird that sings;
But dark were the world and sad our lot,
If the flowers failed and the sun shown not.
And God who studies each separate soul
Out of commonplace lives makes His beautiful whole.”

F.W. Boreham, The Poppies in the Corn
