Cool Thanksgiving Poem for Friends
Now, have a look at the inspirational 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
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.”
‘The Bean Eaters’ By Gwendolyn Brooks
“They eat beans mostly, this old yellow pair.
Dinner is a casual affair.
Plain chipware on a plain and creaking wood,
‘Thanksgiving’ By Ella Wheeler Wilcox
“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.”
‘Thankful’ By Mandy Cidlik
“No ghosts or goblins and trick-or-treats,
No candy or flowers for your sweets.
No gifts to buy or presents to give,
Just be THANKFUL for the life that you live.”
‘Butter’ By Elizabeth Alexander
“We are Mumbo and Jumbo’s children despite
historical revision, despite
our parent’s efforts, glowing from the inside
out, one hundred megawatts of butter.”
‘A Thanksgiving Poem’ by CJ Beaman
“May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes n’ gravy have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize,
May your thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs.”
‘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
“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.”
‘The Traveling Onion’ by Naomi Shihab Nye
“When I think how far the onion has traveled
just to enter my stew today, I could kneel and
all small forgotten miracles…”
‘One Day Is There Of The Series’ by Emily Dickinson
“ONE day is there of the series
Termed Thanksgiving day,
Celebrated part at table,
Part in memory.”
‘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
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.
‘Home’ by Rruce Weigl
“I didn’t know
I was grateful for such late-autumn
yellow in the after-harvest
sun before the
cold plow turns it all over
I didn’t know I would enter this music…”
‘To All My Friend’ by May Wang
“That I could be this human at this time
breathing, looking, seeing, smelling
That I could be this moment at this time
resting, calmly moving, feeling”
‘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
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.
