Объявляется конкурс перевода

Один афонский монах, про которого я скоро напишу (давно уже собираюсь) прислал мне стихотворение неизвестного автора, вполне возможно, что оно афонского происхождения - хотя может кто-то распознает автора? Хочу предложить френдам составить перевод стихотворный. Приз - фото из моей афонской серии размером 30х40 см.

The Difference

I got up early one morning
And rushed right into the day
I had so much to accomplish
That I didn't have time to pray

Problems just tumbled about me
And heavier came each task
"Why doesn't God help me?" - I wondered
He answered - "You didn't ask".

I wanted to see joy and beauty
But the day toiled on, grey and bleak
I wandered why God didn't show me
He said - "But you didn't seek"

I tried to come into God's presence
I used all my keys at the lock
God gently and lovingly chided
"My child, you didn't knock"

I woke up early this morning
And paused before entering the day
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.
