And there is

A day here

In America on

The last Thursday

In November when

The skies are

Grey and littered

With snow and

The wind blows

Cold against faces

That people carry

Pots dishes pans

Wine and desserts

Into friendly houses

To gather around

A table giving

Thanks for those

Most important things

The greatest of

Which are their

Families however that

Group is defined

A day of

Laughter and football

Of stories and

Old jokes of

Belly busting feasts

Here in America

Today is Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to

My friends and

Family I’m thinking

Of you all
