A Wonderful  Holiday Season

A Wonderful Holiday Season

Charles Reznikoff, 1894 - 1976

Te Deum


Not because of victories

I sing,

having none,

but for the common sunshine,

the breeze,

the largess of the spring.


Not for victory

but for the day’s work done

as well as I was able;

not for a seat upon the dais

but at the common table.
