Prayer Of Thanks


Poem Commentary

Sometimes we just need to step back and be thankful for the little things.

Prayer Of Thanks

Thank you for this special day
And all you give to me
Thank you for the swaying grass
And the gentle blowing breeze

For the birds that reign on mountains high
And the creatures that walk the land
The ones that swim the deepest oceans
Or crawl upon the sand

Thank you for the little children
As they play with such delight
And also for the moms and dads
Who work to raise them right

I thank you for the shining sun
That warms our mother earth
And the beauty that befalls us
With each new seasons birth

I also thank you for my friends
And my precious family
And I cant forget my brothers and sisters
Who live across the sea

I pray that you will give them peace
Throughout their troubled land
Grant them peace and mercy
Through the power of your hand

Theres one more request Lord, before I go
That I would like to see
Give me the courage to do whats right
As I journey closer to thee

This is a most beautiful poem. Spoken with a true and sincere heart. Another 10.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
