A Thanksgiving (2009) Celebration Poem by Walterrean Salley

A Thanksgiving (2009) Celebration

Rating: 5.0
 


Thanksgiving, appropriately hailed,
Is a tradition that has long prevailed.
Joining hearts to honor the day,
Celebrating in a grateful way.

Greeting the old, welcoming the new.
Embracing kinfolks—not a few.
Chatting, while putting names to faces.
And humbly bowing to sweet graces.

Then shooting photos—less we forget,
And the moments fade, and we regret.

Last line and specifically the last word made this one a meaningful composition. Crafted well.
