Thanksgiving


By Sherry Clark Long
 
Uncles, aunts, and cousins,
Children by the score;
Pots and pans and casseroles,
Recipes galore;
 
Family members gathered
With happiness to share;
Someone telling tall tales,
Laughter everywhere.
 
A cozy fire to warm us,
Pumpkins picked for pie;
Neighbors and acquaintances
And friends just dropping by --
 
Today, we're celebrating
The bounty of the earth.
We're grateful for our blessings,
For life and all its worth.
