A Little Prayer

Rating: 2.7

Let us be thankful, Lord, for little things -
The song of birds, the rapture of the rose;
Cloud-dappled skies, the laugh of limpid springs,
Drowned sunbeams and the perfume April blows;
Bronze wheat a-shimmer, purple shade of trees -
Let us be thankful, Lord of Life, for these!

Let us be praiseful, Sire, for simple sights; -
The blue smoke curling from a fire of peat;
Keen stars a-frolicking on frosty nights,

Prismatic pigeons strutting in a street;

Lovely poem. We ask for may things from God and we promptly forget to thank when we achieve our objectives. This poem is a poem of gratitude not only for ordinary things but the great things nature has provided to us.

Lovely poem. We tend to forget God when we achieve little things that we ardently pray for. This poem conveys gratitude for many things ordinary things as well as what nature gives which we take for granted.

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.

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.
