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

so that we could have eternal life.
It's indeed a touching poem, it really reminds me and others of the greatness of our Lord in our daily lives, praise be unto God every moment we breathe the priceless breath.... Give that...
I'm resting here quite regally,
The feature of the table.
Surrounded by potatoes that
I'd taste if I were able.
This poem is definitely original and unique. I just never would have thought of looking at Thanksgiving from the turkey's point of view. Very cute poem. I really enjoyed it!
It's cold outside, but it's warm in my heart.
And the gray fall sky is His work of art.
Laden and low, quiet and still,
November is welcome, and my eyes drink their fill
Thank you! SO GLAD you enjoyed it! I think Thanksgiving is so underrated as a holiday, and I tried to put what it means to me into words...glad you appreciated it!!
