a thanksgiving poem


"Thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us;
thanks to the rivers and streams and their waters;
thanks to the corn and the grain fields that feed us;
thanks to the herbs which protect us from illness;
thanks to the wind and the rain for their cleansing;
thanks to the bushes and trees and their fruiting;
thanks to the moon and the stars in the darkness;
thanks to the sun and his eye that looks earthward;
thank the Great Spirit for all of his goodness."
-adapted from an Iroquois address of thanksgiving to the Great Spirit.
