For Dragonflies
For Dragonflies
Prayer

For dragonflies, butterflies,
Caterpillars on leaves,
Lizards, wild turkeys, and tigers and deer,
We give thanks!

For sunset and seashells
And starfish and sand,
Octopus, jellyfish, and hammerhead shark,
We give thanks!

For horses and kitties,
Small bunnies and dogs,
For babies and dogs,
And knowing we’re loved,
We give thanks!

—Gail Forsyth-Vail and the children of the North Parish of North Andover, Massachusetts
