This work has reached the exceptional level
Dinner's Ready!


by Elaine Chiodi

Table laid in Sunday's best
Home is open to welcome guests
Aromas waft throughout the spaces
Noses twitch on eager faces
Kith and kin will soon be here
Some from afar and some from near
Grace be prayed before we dine
In thoughtful quiet with hands entwined
Voices speak both strong and sweet
In welcome to the festive treat
Noble hands bring in the bird
Gobble! Gobble! Tom's last word.
