'Thanksgiving Day' By Lydia Maria Child- Thanksgiving poem for friends

‘Thanksgiving Day’ By Lydia Maria Child

“Over the river, and through the wood

Trot fast, my dapple-gray!

Spring over the ground,

Like a hunting-hound!

For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river, and through the wood,

And straight through the barn-yard gate.

We seem to go

Extremely slow,—

It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood—

Now grandmother’s cap I spy!

Hurrah for the fun!

Is the pudding done?

Hurrah for the pumpkin-pie.”

“We ought to make the moments notes

Of happy, glad Thanksgiving;

The hours and days a silent phrase

Of music we are living.

And so the theme should swell and grow

As weeks and months pass o’er us,

And rise sublime at this good time,

A grand Thanksgiving chorus.”

May your turkey be plump.

May your potatoes n’ gravy have nary a lump,

'King for A Day' by Jo McNally- best Thanksgiving poem for friends

‘King for A Day’ by Jo McNally

I’m resting here quite regally,

The feature of the table.

Surrounded by potatoes that

I’d taste if I were able.

My subjects, scrubbed and beaming,

Circle round the royal platter.

They seem to be adoring me,

But something is the matter.

See me basking in the candlelight,

My skin so nicely tanned.

The reason for this treatment,

I do not understand.

While I’d love to peck that dish of corn

And gobble down a berry,

I find this jolly atmosphere

To be a trifle scary.

These human creatures were my friends.

They filled me up with bread,

But now I have suspicions that

They’re cannibals instead!

'Thanksgiving Comes But Once a Year' by Thornton W. Burgess- best Thanksgiving poem for friends

‘Thanksgiving Comes But Once a Year’ by Thornton W. Burgess

“Thanksgiving comes but once a year,

But when it comes it brings good cheer.

For in my storehouse on this day

Are piles of good things hid away.

Each day I’ve worked from early morn

To gather acorns, nuts, and corn,

Till now I’ve plenty and to spare

Without a worry or a care.

So light of heart the whole day long,

I’ll sing a glad Thanksgiving song.”

'Ah! on Thanksgiving day ...' by John Greenleaf Whittier- Thanksgiving poem for friends

‘Ah! on Thanksgiving day …’ by John Greenleaf Whittier

When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,

And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.

What moistens the lips and what brightens the eye?

What calls back the past, like the rich pumpkin pie?

'All in a Word' by Aileen Fisher

‘All in a Word’ by Aileen Fisher

T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.

H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.

A for autumn’s frosty art, and abundance in the heart.

N for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember.

K for kitchen, kettles’ croon, kith and kin expected soon.

S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds.

That spells ~~~THANKS—for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving.

I was grateful for such late-autumn

bent-up cornfields

sun before the

cold plow turns it all over

I didn’t know I would enter this music…”

‘Thanksgiving’ by Old Rhyme

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 Pilgrims Came' by Annette Wynne- Thanksgiving poem for friends

‘The Pilgrims Came’ by Annette Wynne

The Pilgrims came across the sea,

And never thought of you and me;

And yet it’s very strange the way

We think of them Thanksgiving day.

We tell their story, old and true

Of how they sailed across the blue,

And found a new land to be free

And built their homes quite near the sea.

Every child knows well the tale

Of how they bravely turned the sail

And journeyed many a day and night,

To worship God as they thought right.
