Thanksgiving Hymn

For sun above and earth below,

For flowers’ blooms, and rivers’ flow,

For springtime after pristine snow,

Lord, we give you thanks.

For sunshine after timely rains,

For mountain peaks and golden plains,

For air in lungs and blood in veins,

 Lord, we give you thanks.

For tables laid with pumpkin pies,

For elders’ lore, and newborns’ sighs,

For secret looks in lover’s eyes,

Lord, we give you thanks.

For day to work, and night to rest,

For Heaven’s Love on earth expressed,

For all the ways that we are blessed,

Lord, we give you thanks.

Thanksgiving Parade

cranberry leaves

Pumpkins paint the garden coral,

Arbours don their Sunday best;

Grasses nod in shades of sorrel,

Geese sing hymns upon their quest.

Raindrops augment sweet perfume

As Autumn acts her great charade;

All of Nature stands in wonder,

Gives her thanks in loud parade.
