A poem of gratitude from Georgia

Our daughter, seven, said thank you last year –

My family, kittens, reading, school, and friends

on a construction paper bird with silly eyes

She brought it home, safe in every word

and the robustness of the world. It’s still there

on our fridge, one grateful by yellow feather.

Now eight, locked, the only thank you she’ll give

is that “this year is almost over.” We live

least certainly, looking at hot spots and trends.

I add “our health” and “that we are here together”.

– Chelsea Rathburn, Poet Laureate from Georgia
