prayer of thanksgiving


i thank You God for most this amazing day:

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees

and a blue true dream of sky;

and for everything which is natural

which is infinite

which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,

and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth

day of life and love and wings: and of the gay

great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing breathing any-

lifted from the no of all nothing-

human merely being

doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and

now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Beautiful. We are snow-covered here, but the praise of natural beauty is the same.
Thank you, God, for all you give us!

Prayers for our son, Jay. He had to go to the ER again last night for chest pains/PSVT. He has to find a cardiologist on Monday.

And prayers that this stop being an every Friday night event ...

Thanks!
