Thanksgiving Feast

by dovemarie

Every year comes Thanksgiving fest,
To celebrate planting and a rich harvest

We prepare turkey and trimmings,
Plates of food full to the brimming
Gravy, seasoning, and salad dressing
Joyful songs of blessing

Fruitful fields of farmers' labor
Shared with family, friend and neighbor

Squash, cranberry sauce, tomatoes, corn
Overflowing a plenteous horn
Blueberry, apple, pecan, and pumpkin pies
Sweet rolls and cakes of various size

All around the table adorn,
Give thanks to Mother Earth this shining morn
