With all the help you did for me i want to give a treat. here are some thanksgiving poems I found.
Thank You For Inviting Us
Thank you for inviting us
To your Thanksgiving dinner.
A day spent in your company
Is invariably a winner.
Thank you for the time you spent
Preparing all the food;
For making us feel welcome,
You have our gratitude!
When the Halloween pumpkins are gone,
And the leaves have all fallen to ground,
When the air has turned windy and cold,
Then Thanksgiving will soon be around.
Thoughts of loved ones all feasting together,
Pleasant pictures from past times appear
To dwell in each heart and each mind--
Then Thanksgiving is finally here!
The kitchen has scrumptious aromas,
The dining room looks oh, so fine,
Decorations with pilgrims and turkeys,
And now we are ready to dine!
First the napkins are placed on our laps;
Now the prayer for the meal to be blessed,
Then we stuff the good food in our tummies,
And we hope for it all to digest!
More Than A Day
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we're poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We're wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you've got;
Realize it's a lot,
And you'll make all your cares go away
On Thanksgiving Day weíre thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.
For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.
Weíre grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.
The list of all weíre grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!
Iím Thankful for You
Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
letís be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
Iím thankful for you.
Most of All
Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.
As meals go, Thanksgiving dinner
Is always a feast--a five star winner.
Here comes the salad, dressed just right,
The golden brown turkey--a savory delight;
The stuffing now, and then the gravy,
The jello mold, all wiggly and wavy.
Take some cranberry sauce and candied yams;
Is there room for fresh made rolls and jams?
More dishes tempt me; ah, but I
Must save some room for pumpkin pie!
Thanksgiving is anticipation...
the excitement of wonderful aromas,
golden, harvest-themed dťcor,
the best linens, china and silver.
platters of of special Thanksgiving foods
prepared only once a year,
mmn...mmn... mouths watering,
ecstatic taste buds quivering with joy.
the family all around the table,
clean, dressed, smiles all around,
recitation of what we are thankful for,
the saying of grace,
our special Thanksgiving prayer.
And now, finally, dig in!
We are thinking of you
at Thanksgiving, and hoping
your Thanksgiving experience
will be surrounded
by a special glow in your memory.
Thanksgiving is a time
For reviewing what we treasure,
The people we hold dear,
Who give us so much pleasure.
Without you as my friend,
Life would be a bore;
Having you in my life
Is what Iím thankful for.
Thanksgiving Every Day
The table is brimming with good things to eat;
We're surrounded by family and friends; what a treat.
The feelings that fill us today canít be beat;
Itís Thanksgiving Day, and it all feels complete.
But other days, sometimes things donít seem so fine;
Those days are not polished and donít seem to shine.
It's then in our minds, we forget all the good,
And think of the things we would get, if we could.
On days when our thinking causes us dread,
If we could remember, itís all in our head,
And not let our minds take our gratitude away,
Then we'd make every day like Thanksgiving Day.
A Family Thanksgiving
Mom and Dad And all the folks
Who sit around the table,
All give thanks to the Lord above
For the fact that we are able
To have the food and shelter
We all need to survive,
And have the love of family
That makes it good to be alive.
A Child's Thanksgiving Thanks
Iím thankful for the many things
That help us live as well as kings,
For all the food that makes us drool,
And another holiday from school.
Mom is in the kitchen,
And when I take a look,
Iím glad Iím not a turkey
Thatís she's about to cook!
Countdown To Thanksgiving
One two three,
A turkey in a tree;
Four five six,
That turkeyís in a fix;
Seven eight nine,
It always tastes so fine;
When we get to ten
It's Thanksgiving once again.
Hooray For Thanksgiving
Itís Thanksgiving dinner;
Letís not be late;
Thereís lots of good food,
So fill up your plate.
With pie at the end,
It canít be beat;
Hooray for Thanksgiving,
Thereís so much to eat!
The last piece of apple pie is gone;
How did it disappear?
The bowl of delicious stuffing
Has also vanished, I fear.
It happens each Thanksgiving,
When leftover goodies flee,
And each of us knows the responsible one
Couldnít be you or me.
The only way it could happen
Is readily diagnosed;
It must be the crafty, incredibly sneaky,
Still hungry Thanksgiving ghost.
Thanksgiving brings a terrible chore,
'Cause Iím forced to eat and eat some more.
If I donít eat it up right down to dessert,
I fear the cookís feelings will surely be hurt,
So I do my part, even though I suffer;
To be a good guest, Iím a belly stuffer.
Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving Day?
Whatís its significance, all of us say.
We all find importance for which we are thankful,
And what we spend on this holiday is surely a bank full.
First the purchase of food for parties galore,
Then the fuel and decorating costs come to the fore.
We eat so much food that many get ill,
And drug makers get richer with each little pill.
It all becomes clear, if we closely examine
That weíre not giving thanks for avoiding a famine;
Weíre creating the wealth and the plenty we see,
Including the sports ads we watch on TV.
