Gobble - Poem by Shannon Greenwald

When they say you laugh,
Like a turkey, and everyone agrees,
You know you have something special.
A gobble they say can
Spark the laughter of others.
I am proof
That laughter brings
Joy and healing.
Everybody laughs a little strange,
And every laugh is unique,
Some snort,
Some giggle,
Some shout,
And some can’t breath,
But none laugh as a turkey like I.
For I love my Gobble,
And I know it will resound
In the hearts of those I love,
Long after I have gone
And they will smile
In memory of the girl
With the turkey laugh.
