i thank you God for most this 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)
