Thanksgiving Poems

Poems for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday with wonderful food. It is a time to celebrate that God 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.

    Being Thankful For Simple Things

    The wind pushes down the road, a warm breeze
    just warm enough.
    Thank you for a word...a whisper.
    So many colors surround, leaves falling, carpeting a soft path.

    Thanksgiving By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    We walk on starry fields of white
    And do not see the daisies;
    For blessings common in our sight
    We rarely offer praises.

    I'm resting here quite regally

    If a turkey will make a wish
    It would be a long, long list.
