In Thankfulness
Oh, God, if I could but impart
the thankfulness that swells my heart.
For each and every little thing …
Like color bursts announcing Spring.
The shaded spots the trees have brought.
The sunshine brightening every thought …
The squirrels playing on my lawn …
The eventide … the still new dawn ….
The fragrant smell of brown leaves burned.
The fresh black dirt, where earth is turned -
So many small things such as these
Have done so much my life to please.
My whole life long would be of praise
To God, the Keeper of my days.
- Beverly Enderby
