My Latest Inspiration
By Nan S. Richardson
Sometime ago, about eighty-six years,
I came to this world of joy and tears.
I’m thankful for parents who came with the band
And established a home in this glorious land;
I’m thankful for music, for books and flowers,
To enlighten one’s mind and while away hours.
I’m thankful for faith, and the gospel, and health
That’s been more to me than all the world’s wealth.
I’m thankful for sons and grandchildren, too, and
Brothers and sisters, and friends so true.
But I don’t like arthritis. I would be very pleased
If I could buy hinges that would limber my knees.
