Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

56. A Child’s Prayer


FOR Morn, my dome of blue, 
For Meadows, green and gay, 
And Birds who love the twilight of the leaves, 
Let Jesus keep me joyful when I pray. 
  
For the big Bees that hum         5
And hide in bells of flowers; 
For the winding roads that come 
To Evening’s holy door, 
May Jesus bring me grateful to his arms, 
And guard my innocence for evermore.  10
