A Thanksgiving poem I wrote ^_^

The Things That I'm Thankful For, by Me.

The green of the grass, the blue of the sky,
the colorful flowers that make you sigh.

the beautiful earth upon which we gaze.

The mice that squeak, the lions that roar,
the fishes that swim, the birds that soar.
These are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

The sand that is dry, the sea that is wet,
the sun that rises and also sets.

The ears that listen, the mouth that talks,
the friend that goes with you on walks.

The wonderful world we have to explore,
the mystery that lies behind every door.
These are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

The adventure in a book, the beauty in art,
the song that is written from the heart.

My healthy body, my quick, sharp mind,
the soul I have that is gentle and kind.

The life I've led and the life still in store,
even though no one's keeping score,
these are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

the season I love best of all.

The warmth of a kitchen, the smell of great food,
your friends and family and all that is good.

I'm thankful for all these things and more,
honestly, truly, to my very core.
Yes, these are the things I am thankful for. ^_^

I know one thing that I'm very thankful for today. Thank you, Google Images!!!
