I'm Thankful For...
By Aidan Hellen
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary K-3
Year: 2002 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

I'm thankful for my eyes
because I like to see the world
thankful for my nose to smell
the sweet smell of cookies
thankful for my ears
because I like music
and I always like singing it
thankful for my mouth
because I can eat
my favorite things
I'm thankful for my hands
because I like to feel
my mommy's face.
