A poem of thankfulness

  1. 1. and dashing dogs. For bubbly babies and feisty frogs, For glittering grass For laughing lilacs and sunny skies, For dotted dresses and striped ties. Jesus, Thank You… A Poem of Thankfulness
  2. 2. For our classroom’s petting zoo: and spitting llamas, Curious camels For amazing ants that remind me to “stick,” Heavenly halos bright as a lit-candle’s wick. And frosty ice cream that drips down my hand, Of cats, hamsters, and guinea pig too. and green- skinned iguanas. For dancing deer And field mice that live off the land.
  3. 3. For orange orangutans, jolly and spry, And plump partridges high in the sky. For jostling jalopies that Grandpa once rode, And treasure hunts and friends’ secret codes. For quizzical questions that challenge my mind, For dexterous yo-yos lined in a row, And vibrant violets that our garden grows. Red-red rambutans are so tasty, I find.
  4. 4. But, Lord, what I like best of all, Is Your affection for one so small.

For whacky Word times with wondrous Walt, And for pies that are not filled with salt!
