Bless to Me This Morning


A Bless to Me prayer by Jack:

Bless to me this morning in the Spring,
This cool air that means
The door can be left open
(for a little while).

Bless to me this door to the world
At which I sit
And smell
And think
And rest.

Bless to me the new sounds, new smells
From the deck
From the forest
From the neighbors.

Bless to me the squirrels
That come to eat or drink,
The squirrels I love to chase,
The squirrels so brave,
The squirrels that taunt me
With their little squirrel grins.

Bless to me this morning in the Spring,
This open door,
This sitting spot
Just for me.
