Happy Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is one Holiday
where your taste buds get the gift
There is lots of cooking
the smell of pie is adrift

There will be turkey and dressing,
cranberries and other side dishes you adore
Dinner rolls will top your plate
And in pain, you go back for more

Some will try to save room
for that special pumpkin pie
And have a slice, room or not
with each bite just say, my oh my

Most will loosen their belt
or maybe undo a button or snap
Then head for the couch
and a Thanksgiving Day nap

There will be leftovers
we will enjoy and share
For on Thanksgiving
no cupboard should be bare

With these simple words
I wish you and yours the best
And I hope in this time of uncertainty
Thanksgiving, passes the test

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
