1 Count That Day Lost by George Eliot Summary

2 Count That Day Lost by George Eliot is a poem about going beyond the care and concern for oneself to make someone else happy in order to make a day worth while.

3 George Eliot was English and wrote about relationships. Characters: Speaker - Narrator of the poem

4 Stanza 1: At the end of the day, if you have done one unselfish act to bring "sunshine where it went" then the day was worth the time that one had spent.

5 Stanza 2: On the other hand, if the count of any unselfish deeds is zero, then the speaker can say that day is "worse than lost" for there was no "sunshine

6 The poem is basically saying that a day spent helping people can be considered a really good day. Even if you do one small thing to help someone in a tiny way, the day has not been lost because of the joy you brought to another person.

7 However, if at the end of your day, you can remember nothing that you did that was helpful or comforting or compassionate towards another person, consider the day lost because you had a golden opportunity to be a better person and you missed it.

8 When you do a good deed for someone else, you become a better person.
