Treasure Island

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

Thank The Good Shepard


Let us remember to be thankful. The Lord, our Good Shepard, prepares a table before us, our friends, and our enemies. Our Good Shepard hears our pleas, and provides for all of our basic needs. The Lord will truly bless us indeed if we promise to consider both the poor and needy.

This Thanksgiving holiday should always be remembered as a special day to 'thankd the Lord and give him praise.' Yes, this thanksgiving holiday is much more than an 'eat, drink, be merry' time of year. Therefore, let us always bless the Lord, and be of good cheer throughout the rest of the year!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Thank the Good Shepard was part of our 'V is for Victory, ' collection. I frequently wrote holiday poems during other times of the year. This poem is a good example of that practice.

When I was composing the poem, I tried to put my mind into thinking about the actual holiday its self. It makes it a whole lot easier, rather than focusing on summertime events.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
