Thanksgiving Hymn

In January 2017, RSBC merged with the Royal London Society for Blind People (RLSB). Although we are now called RSBC, there may be some references to RLSB in the following article.

 
As our friends from across the pond celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, we thought it was an apt time to publish a poem called Thanksgiving Hymn.

It was penned by two students in Class 6 of Dorton School, Janice Collins and Sheila McWhinnie, who were 10 years old at the time it was published in 1955.

Thanksgiving Hymn
We thank you for the sea and shore,
The cliffs so wide and bare.
We thank you for the lonely moor,
The daffodils so fair.
We thank you for the wind so strong,
The leaves that sometimes float along.
We thank you for the grass so tall,
We thank you O my god for all.
