thankful

Thanksgiving


Thank You
for all my hands can hold-
apples red
and melons gold,
yellow corn
both ripe and sweet,
peas and beans
so good to eat!


Thank You
for all my eyes can see-
lovely sunlight,
field and tree,
white cloud-boats
in sea-deep sky,
soaring bird
and butterfly.


Thank You
for all my ears can hear-
bird's song echoing
far and near,
songs of little
stream, big sea,
cricket, bullfrog,
duck and bee!
