Harvest of Gratitude

The crops are in and plenteous
The barns are full to bursting
Harvest festivals are in full swing
Happy harvesters are singing

Another harvest I would like to see
One not measured by the bushel
Howbeit, glorious it would be
To observe this crop in full measure

The fruit of gratitude so often rare
Yet most delicious
It warms the essence of one's being
Makes living so much more precious

It brings other fruit along
Growing luxuriously in its shadow
Peace, longsuffering, gentleness, patience
Kindness, forgiveness, forebearance

Fruit that lasts forever
Yet there is never enough

Yet there is never enough

Harvest of Gratitude (c)2005 Quentin Clingerman
