Prosperity - Poem by Dawn Cahoon Kniff

Success in what you put your hand to...
Fulfillment of all your right desires.
Old friendships that grow... and some, brand new.
The spirit that lights ambition's fires.

Bounding energy for each new quest.
An outlook full of richness and health.
Appetite that's always at it's best...
Taste, quite good, and a sense of true wealth.

A broad vision ... no limitations.
Faith to start - and also see it through.
A love of God, Man, and all Nations.
Attraction toward beautiful and true.

To believe in failure... much too wise.
In the darkest night ... "sitting it out."
With deepest joy, to see the sunrise,
and learn what the day is all about.

To know what it is to really love...
The purest waters of life to drink.
Always aware of the One above...
I'll feel prosperous -- what do you think?
