BLESSINGS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: It's what I thank god for each night
Last Line: No more I'd claim.

It's what I thank God for each night--
A little cabin that's mine by right,
The strength of a man for work or fight,
And food and light.

It's what I thank God for each day--
A wife with never too much to say,
A wife, a dog, and a chile for play;
For those I'd pray.

I thank God for the Land I tread,
A pipe to smoke and an easy bed,
The thatch I made that's over my head,
And daily bread.

I thank God for an Irish name,
And a son of mine to bear the same,
My own to love me and none to blame
No more I'd claim.
