Happy Thanksgiving! ! ! - Poem by Gayle Sweeney

Good Mornin! !
Happy Thanksgiving! !
The turkey is roasting
In the oven.
The aroma from an open box of Bell's seasoning
The past few days has filled the kitchen.
We have fresh butternut squash planned with brown sugar and
cinnamon, small onions, cranberry sauce, potatoes and stuffing.
Yesterday we did the hoilday shopping.
On the table pies await - apple, blueberry and southern pecan.
We are blessed by the heavens on this traditional occasion.
Bless families not so lucky in our beloved nation.
Today we honor the pilgrims
And the wonderful native American Indians.
Today we remember the Mayflower and the devoted celebration
At Plymouth Plantation
Not far from the great blue Massachusetts ocean
With our country still in the making.
Football rivalries are an elation.
The Macy's parade is a New York City sensation.
Is it cold outside? - Good Morning! ! !
Soon turkey we will be gobbling!
Gotta go visiting, too,
And we are hoping for sun.
