A Woman’s Thanks

I thank Thee, Father,
For these simple things
Of which my world is made …
Soft winds among the trees,
Sunshine and shade,
The stars at night,
The shining golden light
With which each new day breaks,
The little singing sounds
Which baby makes
When he awakes.
I thank Thee, too,
For sky of blue,
For freedom, home and friends;
For love with its soft rainbow hues
In which my glad heart’s searching ends!
