Thanks for Thanksgiving

Family, friends, and turkey

Are things we think of
When Thanksgiving rolls around
As it always does.

Pumpkin pie and cranberries,
Stuffing piled up high.
Pass the mashed potatoes, please
The special day flies by!

When our guests have gone back home
And nighttime is here,
We give thanks for all we have
And people we hold dear.
