Thank You God for this most amazing day

i thank you God for this most amazing day,

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees

and a blue true dream of sky;

and for everything
 which is natural which is infinite which is yes.

(i who have died am alive again today,
 and this is the sun’s birthday;

this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:

and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
 breathing any–

lifted from the no 
of all nothing–human merely being 
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and 
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
