In Heaven We May Dwell

Handwritten poem:

Youth is the time to improve the mind
In things that is to us inclin'd
And may our thoughts be ever rais'd
To God in prayer love and praise
The days to us alotted here
Are short and few as it doth appear
And may we thus improve them well
So that in heaven we may dwell

I think it's funny that the poem was found in a grammar book.

I think it's "is to us inclined". I love your blog.

You're right, I just stink at typing.
