Thanks For Poetry


Thank you wild
And thank you free
Thanks for all you’ve given me
Thank you life
For loves embrace
For all the sweetness in this place
Thank you calm
And thanks inform
For shelter from each violent storm
And thank you earth and sky and sea
For being part of what is me
Thank you truth and sanctuary
Thanks belief
And thank you time and memory
And when troubles scour my mind
Thank you for the strength I find
Thanks for depth
And inner power
To overcome a laboured hour
And on those days when life goes wrong
Thanks for knowing I belong
And yes wild
And yes free
Thanks for standing here with me.
