We take note of this blessed, this glorious day--

A day opening itself in fog,

Gracing with its sun our mid-morning,

Blessing with thunder and a shower

Our early afternoon. 


We accept the gift of this glorious day--

A day which we will forever remember,

Graced by mid-afternoon sun,

Blessed with warmth.

Holding in its wide moments

The promise of an evening

Graced by a full, round moon.
