Mothers 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 kitchens air
Onions sauted in butter, broken bread,
Eggs and spices together mixed with broth, then in the turkey stuffed
'Taters boiled 'til tenderness,
Mashed with milk and buter
Yams, darkened sugar, butter and marshmellows slowly cooked
'Till syrup made
Yeast roll rising nearer the ovens 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
