Prayer for a July Summer’s Day

I raise my face to the summer sun this morning

I thank the cool breeze caressing my face

I ask blessings of the day from mornings first light

and all through the night.

Sweetness of the passing rain

Morning song of the mockingbird

Adolescent complaint of the crow

Cheeriness of the white rose

Freshness of the butterflies

Fragrance of garden herbs

Laziness of a lizard

Beauty of clouds

Cleaness of air

Bless my day and whom I love

All this day and during the coolness of night
