Thursday Verse: "Te Deum" - Charles Reznikoff

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.

- Charles Reznikoff
