I am thankful for
for living in this great country.
Thanks go out
to this beautiful wondrous day.
I am especially thankful
for having met and became
so many friends o’er
the passage of Time.
I am eternally grateful
for those who
have honored me with
their invaluable camaraderie
extraordinary advice
(some of which I actually used).
I am very thankful
that I found nature to b a blessing
Oh! There are so many things
I am so very thankful for
on this Thanksgiving Day 2017.
Ahhh . . . but I would be remiss if I
ended this meager poem out
without thanking
you, and particularly I give thanks
to YOU!

Many well-deserved accolades for your poetry, Jerry...of which I add my own. But the thankfulness which is at the heart of your poem is what evokes a thankfulness of my own, such as having enough breaths to bring my reply to a conclusion and having enough left over to do it many times again.

Best wishes for the coming holidays, Jerry.
