    Let us be grateful, God, for health serene,
    The hope to do a kindly deed each day;
    The faith of fellowship, a conscience clean,
    The will to worship and the gift to pray;
    For all of worth in us, of You a part,
    Let us be grateful, God, with humble heart. (Report) Reply

    The poem transports us to another land -one which is lost from the face of the earth forever much like the poet's own Dawson county to which he did not return for fear that it might have changed. As I write, the global economy is facing a meltdown & it becomes increasingly difficult to find things to be thankful for. (Report) Reply
