I Will Give You Thanks


ೋღ♥ ღೋ

I will give You thanks, with all my being,
for clouds tinged pink ~ morning’s art worth seeing,
for evening’s kiss as sea and sun now meet
the horizon’s show as day is complete
for beauty You are so freely giving.

And, Lord, for the mountains worth the climbing,
I gaze at Your landscape just beginning.
as fall’s quilt of colors, my eyes do greet
I will give You thanks.

With majestic splendor, You are blessing,
with a heart full of love, You are sharing,
Autumn’s rich colors with apple’s so sweet
to summer’s pleasures with sand at my feet
For the moon’s glow, and dew in the morning
I will give You thanks.

For my Sunday poem, I decided to try another Rondeau (instructions here).  I really love writing them.  I hope you enjoy.

May your Sunday and week be filled with many blessings,  peace, and joy coming from the Father who gives so freely.  With much love……

    I am so happy to see that you have written another rondeau! You have really embraced the form, and you write it so beautifully. I think certain forms just “fit” what we want to say. Excellent poem! Love it. :)
