I offer my gratitude
To everything on earth
That’s as sweet to the eye
As glistening cherry blossoms
Under a clear blue sky
To the early morning light
At the dawn of day
To the dew that washes
A flowers wrinkles away
To the sound of thunder
And the rain’s applause
To the beacons of light
From the stars so bright
And to the poet’s verse
Who once reminded us
Little we see in nature
That is ours.
