Give Thanks

Give Thanks!Leaves of many colors,Red, yellow, orange.Dancing in the wind,playing on the ground.The deep glow of pumpkins; Their kind or scary grins shine,As their friends are making pie!Out of the ovenOnto the tableTo greet the steaming turkey,Sitting near the potato pot,Meet the brilliant red cranberry sauce,Hear the bustling of rumbling bellies,Everyone loud and ready to feast!Give Thanks!Only crumbs remainEverything picked awayDishes clatter in the sinkPeople quietly banter.Hear the children’s’ laughter,As they swim in the leaves,Stars twinkle,On this nippy night,Kids are rounded upHugs exchanged,Goodbyes that are never true
Keep the people you love close to you!Give Thanks!
