I just read an article that featured a lovely little table blessing.  As I've always said my own freeform prayer in my head at meals and have always wanted something to share with others during communal events, I thought I'd alter yon cute little poem a bit and commemorate it here.  (To keep for my own records, and to share with others.  If you like it, then by all means, feel free to use it as you please. :)) 

Blessings on the blossoms,
Blessings on the fruits,
Blessings on the leaves and stems,
Blessings on the roots,
Blessings on the gentle lives,
That helped to make this meal,
We thank you for this bounty
As in our heart/s we kneel.  

Alt. Version:
Who helped to make this food,
We give You thanks for all Your gifts,
And bow our heads in gratitude.

(And of course "we" can be substituted for "I," just as "Your" can be switched for "God's," "Heaven's," or "Earth's," etc. :))
Hope you enjoy!
