Happy Thanksgiving!!

If you are new to Activerain or if last year is a blur or even if you would like to read it again, I thought I would offer my Thanksgiving poem once again.  I hope you enjoy it and feel free to share it as you wish.

 

Thanksgiving

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many things to be thankful for

 

Where might I begin?

 

Little faces to adore

 

And finally tucking them in

 

 

 

Little boys and little girls

 

To perpetuate our race

 

Simple toys and pretty curls

 

And a smile on every face

 

 

 

Relatives of all shapes and sizes

 

Available just when you want them to be

 

Playing games and winning prizes

 

Sharing a meal and laughing with glee

 

 

 

Warming up by a roaring fire

 

Winter’s rosy red cheeks

 

Finding a book that you desire

 

And reading it for weeks

 

 

 

Inner peace to share with yourself

 

And time to be with others

 

Pretending to be a jolly old elf

 

And finally having your druthers

 

 

 

Having the freedom to follow your own pursuits

 

The beauty of falling snow

 

Exulting with hollers and hoots

 

Watching your family grow

 

 

 

A few moments in daily prayer

 

Being kind to a friend

 

Steak as you like it, not too rare

 

Having no need to pretend

 

 

 

Watching with your nose to the window pressed

 

The excitement of receiving something new

 

Enjoying a peaceful world at rest

 

And these are just a few
