I thank you, O Goddess, for the pleasures you have given me through my senses.
For the glory of thunder and the mystery of music.
For the singing of birds and the laughter of children.
I thank you for the delights of colour,
the awe if sunset,
the wild roses in the hedgerows,
the smile of friendship.
I thank you for the sweetness of the flowers
and the scent of hay.
Truly, O Lady, the earth is full of your riches
Edward King 1829 -1910 ( adapted)
