Happy Thanksgiving from Walton Outdoors

A fall morning at Morrison Springs. Lori Ceier/Walton Outdoors

I Thank Thee

For diamond-studded velvet

Behind a silver moon

For music of the nightwinds,

A nightingale’s sweet tune –

For whispering trees

And darkening peace –

I Thank Thee

For mountains carved of sea pearls

For clouds that shroud their heights

For pristine air like nectar

And ghostly northern lights

For misty vales

And secret dales –

I Thank Thee.

For firey fuchsia ribbons

That stream across the sky

For opalescent sunsets

And mornings dipped in dye

For mornings pale

And day’s finale –

I Thank Thee.

For scents that herald springtime

For lilac-haunted nooks

For violet’s purple fragrance

And merry, trickling brooks –

For little things

That give souls wings –

I Thank Thee.
