A Lesson of Life (Thanksgiving)

(dedicated to Ms. Elī na Garanč a, a great mezzo-soprano)

This autumn is so relief
I hope it is a purely day
I have spiritual sense
Inside my very heart

I would like to attend
The ceremony or travel
Long distances with my family
I hope we have a large dinner too

We are as a family
Gather together
Yes, it’s the time
To a family reunion

I invite my all family, all friends
We are happily cooking together
We are happily eating together
We are happily talking together

Sweet potatoes
Pumpkin pie
A turkey

When crops are gathered
We are all thank God
We would also celebrate
National Unity, the harvest

I share what I have
With those who don’t have
I provide free meals
For the poor, old people, homeless

I prepare meals for them
I serve meals for them
I give meals for them
I sing Prayer of Thanksgiving with them

(inspired by Thanksgiving Celebration)

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
