Siegfried Sassoon

Here you will find the Poem A Child's Prayer of poet Siegfried Sassoon

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
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.
