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.

    I could list the gifts I'm thankful for and write until next week.

    Bundled in a horse-drawn sleigh,

    just warm enough.

    I love the idea and the concept of this story. It shows that we should never be ungrateful. I especially like the idea of reading it from the bottom to the top. Very well-written.
