Analysis of Count Your Blessings



My dog follows beside me,
On a warn summer eve,
Now and then chasing birds,
He flushes from bushes and trees.

He is my best companion,
He is my true friend indeed,
His is a simple relationship,
I appreciate and need.

When we go wandering,
Nature is the essence of all,
We are enjoying all living things,
Hearing the physical earth's calls.

I know to count my blessings,
My faithful dog is one of them,
So is God's beautiful universe,
A special gift granted to man.
