Letter: Thank you for sharing

Thank you for sharing your families,

Your hearths and your hopes and your homes,

For sharing your beautiful blue skies,

This place from which we’ll never roam.

Thank you for all of your bright souls,

Your myths and your tales and your kin,

Those dear hearts whose sweet grace inspires us,

Who graciously brought us right in.


Thank you for teaching us your ways,

For showing us patience and love,

For sharing your culture, your lineage,

As though we were hand to your glove.

Thank you for sharing your green fields,

Your wildlife, your trees and your bay,

For giving us all that we value,

Our earnest Thanksgiving this day.
