Thanksgiving Day - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

On the fourth Thursday in
November each year,
Americans are of good cheer,
enjoying fine food and wine,
and thinking of a long-ago time,
when the Pilgrim Fathers sailed
in the Mayflower from Plymouth
to America's Massachusetts.
Britain's Captain, 'John Smith',
gave the region its name
~~~New England~~~ and on
every Thanksgiving Day,
Americans enjoy the harvest
both the scene and cuisine.
Our place names are linked
from way back in history...
the seventeenth century being
quite an eventful mystery.
