Thanksgiving (2011)

By the brightness of the trees
In the last warmth of the year
By the lighting of the leaves
We come and are gathered here

In this world we have been blessed
So we feast with thanksgiving
Though this world is wilderness
With the winter on the wing

Yet we give our thanking where
Summer falls and brightness lies
For we shall be gathered there
To the land that never dies.
