Mother's Thanksgiving Dinner

A woman of age, eleven she'd given birth
Darkened hair, highlighted with grey
An apron draped over her rounded belly
A dinner of thanks she was preparing
The aroma of turkey roasting
Lingered in the kitchen's air
Onions sauted in butter, broken bread,
Eggs and spices together mixed with broth, then in the turkey stuffed
'Taters boiled 'til tender,
Mashed with milk and butter
Yams, darkened sugar, butter and marshmallows slowly cooked
'Till syrup made
Yeast roll rising near the oven's heat
Sauce made of cranberries jelled
Hardened eggs made into deviled
Two pies of pumpkin made evenin' fore
All laid upon the table with
Family gathered 'round
A prayer of thanks was spoken
