This my Thanksgiving poem
is just a simple little thing,
when we carve the turkey
you can give the dog a wing.
But first there must be the smells
that will fill the house
but when the yams catch afire
a pan of water surely should douse.
And when the turkey falls apart
just put it on the plate,
it won't matter anyhow
it still gonna get ate.
When you eat the pumpkin pie
save a piece for me,
I baked it so I expect later
a piece there'd  better be.
I'll do the dishes later
I'll be to stuffed to do them now,
would someone please explain to me
where all that food goes and how.
But before we touch this food
there was something I almost  forgot to say
we are grateful for the gifts from above
so let's thank the Lord and  pray.



On the wings of words our spirits fly, and our souls are free.

I liked this a lot, Gentle Spirit. It was cute and the last two lines are great.

Wonderful poem!

I love the turkey when it is falling apart! YUM! As for the dishes how about Chinette? Just throw it all away after dinner. Then you only have to wash the pots, pans and utensils! Cute poem!

GentleSpirit~

I just e-mailed my son the shopping list.
At least that much gets done.
Now let me in the kitchen
cause that's where I have my fun !

And this year, not one but TWO
new daughters-in-law, thank you.
Two new precious family angels,
the dishes they will gladly do.

I'm thankful for the very fact
that this family gathers together ...
Blessings bestowed in bountiful joy
in the beautiful Florida weather !

*Thanks for sharing this adorable inspiring write.

This is good, I like it, it reminds me of the chaos in the kitchen at this time of the year.  Nicely done

Another bump up to the top for Thanksgiving 2001.  

God bless America, my home sweet home.

I thank you all, and this year, knowing you all more than I did last year I can only say that I have been blessed with all that you all have given me in so many ways I can never count them......or repay them.  God bless you all and be with your families and loved ones this year.  Hugs to all and love
