Thanksgiving Poems

Poems for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday with wonderful food. It is a time to celebrate that G-d has given us so much bounty that we can stuff ourselves with food. It is also a time to get together with family, eat delicious food, and in general feel good about ourselves. We loosen our belt buckles a notch, settle into the couch and enjoy a couple of football games. What could be more American than Thanksgiving. It is the American Holiday that is celebrated more than any other.

Short Thanksgiving Poem, Thankful

No ghosts or goblins and trick-or-treats,
No candy or flowers for your sweets.
No gifts to buy or presents to give,
Just be THANKFUL for the life that you live.

Thanksgiving Gobble

It is not really accidental
that this poem's not sentimental,
he tried to run - it's too late,
now the turkey's on the plate,
and may your appetite be monumental.

Grandpa's left hand is Mom and the son he never had.

It will give you all sorts of reasons
To change that turkey tradition.

It will wish you change your mind
Of having a …
