The beauty of the sky so blue,
The singing of the birds so true,
The calming green of all trees too,
Give thanks, for wonders are not few.
A little bird now on my hand,
The mighty pines, how strong they stand,
Mushrooms growing across the land,
Give thanks for all of this, so grand.
Squirrel that now chatters at me,
Cute chipmunk sitting on my knee,
Beautiful flowers blooming free,
Give thanks for beauty you can see.
The autumn leaves are always found
Giving joy with colors and sound,
Time to stop and look around,
Thank God for blessings that abound.
