Happy Thanksgiving!


A Thanksgiving Poem

T’was the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned,
The dark meat and white.
But I fought the temptation,
With all of my might.
Tossing and turning,
with anticipation.
The thought of a snack
became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge,
Full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey,
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling,
So plump and so round.
‘til all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding,
And a handful of pie.
But I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees
Happy eating to all,
Pass the cranberries, please!!
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize
And May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off of your thighs!
by Lauren

Happy Thanksgiving.
I wish you all a beautiful day!

Hi Cecile,
That's the one thing about our thanksgiving...it's always homey and quiet since it's just the three of us and my mom. No stress for me! I wish you the same, Cecile :D!

Hi Blodeuedd,
You guys don't have anything that resembles Thanksgiving? Maybe you should just start it yourself with your family :D. The last Thursday of November fix a big ole turkey dinner, with pumpkin pie :D!!
