the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Gratitude, like love, is part of being,
Remaining when all else is left behind,
Absurd and yet quite natural, a yearning
To give to light the worship of the wind.
In gratitude we find a gift worth giving
To something that no gift can serve at all,
Understanding that the gift of living
Depends upon some will beyond the wall,
Eliciting our gratitude and awe.
