Its been a long year for a lot of us and with it being thanksgiving today I wanted to keep in that same spirit! This whole month is about Gratitude and being thankful…a freindly reminder to never forget. The last poem for Nov is…

Thanksgiving by William Stanley Braithwaite

My heart gives thanks for many things;
For strength to labor day by day,
For sleep that comes when darkness wings
With evening up the eastern way.
I give deep thanks that I’m at peace
With kith and kin and neighbors, too ā€”
Dear Lord, for all last year’s increase,
That helped me strive and hope and do.

My heart gives thanks for many things;
I know not how to name them all.
My soul is free from frets and stings,
My mind from creed and doctrine’s thrall.
For sun and stars, for flowers and streams,
For work and hope and rest and play ā€”
For empty moments given to dreams,
For these my hear gives thanks to-day.
