GREEN GRASS OF GRATITUDE

Green grass of gratitude, uplift my thought!Transform the dust heaps and the wintry earthOf loneliness, self-pity, hurt, and prideWith your compassionate growth and tender green,And I will water with repentant tearsAnd tend the shoots with love and kindliness;Reach deep into the warmth of kindling earthWith fingers quick to find the envious weeds,The clinging growths of fear and self-conceit.

Green grass of gratitude, uplift my thought!
