For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Thanksgiving Poems Rhymes

**

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Thanksgiving Observance

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts.
No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
H.U. Westermayer

**


When all the leaves are off the boughs,
And nuts and apples gathered in,
And cornstalks waiting for the cows,
And pumpkins safe in barn and bin,
Then Mother says, "My children dear,
The fields are brown, and autumn flies;
Thanksgiving Day is very near,
And we must make thanksgiving pies!"

Thanksgiving

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway ---
Thanksgiving comes again!

The Little Pilgrim

Cranberries dripping down my chin
Have stained my pilgrim suit.
I ate too much Thanksgiving day
But I don't give a hoot.

I slurped a pile of dressing,
Gobbled down a turkey thigh,
Dribbled messy cranberries Thankful
Week before Thanksgiving,


I limp around real strange.
Huddle in the corner,
As though I have the mange.
All the other turkeys,

Just gobble, gobble on.
I'm silent, and I act
As if my gobbler's gone. Everyone is thankful
On Thanksgiving Day.

Friday it's forgotten.
You all go on your way.
I know what thankful is
So listen when I say.

It's great to be a turkey,
After Thanksgiving Day."
Devoured some pumpkin pie.
Within me on this special day
It's a thankful heart that beats.
For all the things that I enjoy
But mainly for the eats.

Thanksgiving Poems Rhymes


**

Thanksgiving is a perfect time
To stop and reminisce
About the many hours we've spent
Discussing that and this-
The laughs, the smiles
That we have known
The wonderful things we've done
That make the friendship that we share
A very special one!
Have a lovely Thanksgiving Day, my friend

Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel

The Nurse

When you are feeling sick, or worse,
Thank your dear Maker for your nurse
Whose tender care and ministrations
are worth sincere congratulations.

The shattered limb, the fevered brow
are much the same to her somehow.
There is a need, a chance to heal,
to ease the pain that you might feel.

Through all those precious smiles
and words of comfort, as she tends
With all her sharpened skills and guiles
without complaint, she mends.

Then there comes the day
when you are sent upon your way
-- and you discover, in the end,
that you have had a pleasant visit
with a very special friend.
Frank Paylor

Thanksgiving Poems Rhymes

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them,

is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
W.T. Purkiser

**

The harvests and the crops
Are a blessing to us all;
We work the land to feed us
But God created it all.

We Thank Him for our daily bread
Our hearts are full of cheer;
I'm not sure from all the grain
Were we supposed to turn it into beer?

He leaves us to our own devices
This doesn't mean he doesn't care;
But we need to show respect for him
Wreck his creation? We wouldn't dare?

So Thank You for the chance
To live a wonderful life;
Upon this earth of yours
Forgive us for all the strife.
Maggie-May
