A Homely Gratitude

From the Evening Star, November 6, 1914. By Philander Johnson.

Thankful fur the sunshine bright
    And thankful fur the rain;
Thankful fur the moon so white
    An’ fur the wind’s refrain!

Thankful fur the stars that shine
    When shadows gather near;
Thankful fur the friends of mine
    That gather fur good cheer!

Thankful fur the work that brings
    The rest that builds anew,
An’ made me ‘most forget the things
    Fur which my thanks are due!
