Three Thanksgiving Acrostics
Too many years ago to count
Help arrived from native peoples
And began our tradition of thanksgiving.
Never would a year go by without
Kin and friends gathered for this day.
Small blessings and large,
Good years and bad, all deserve
In their own way, grateful appreciation,
Vivacious feasting, laughter -
Indeed, even volunteer work and parades
Now are ways of celebrating, a way to
Give thanks for everything in our lives.
Thanksgivin' gives turkeys no reason for thanks
Until the day after.
Ready-to-gobble-down, frozen, fried or stuffed,
"Kountry-raised" in tiny pens -
Enough we all say!
Young 'uns go off to your dinner tables.
Day-long feasts revolve around us
And you say your thanks and all that,
Yearning for your naps, full of turkey.
Is a time to give thanks
More than the rest of the year.
Even in hard
Or those of
Indeed especially during those
Very trying times
Every blessing brings a reason
To give thanks.
Health and family, friends
And a house to call home -
No need to remember a bad year.
Know it is behind, look forward,
Say a prayer and enjoy the day.
