My attitude toward gratitude has changed.

Never much  for counting blessings

I am  finally beginning  to keep the score

of my assembled gifts.


It took so long for me to learn

to count what heaven bestows.

At last I know.


In my remaining years

with some smiles and likely tears

I’ll pursue the counting

I have overlooked before.

It’s taken long enough:

four score plus.

But finally

I have learned to count.
