Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone

Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1863-1930)

  First Thanksgiving Poem

If I had been a Pilgrim child
Among the fields and forests wild
Where deer and turkey used to roam,
A cabin would have been my home
With fireplace and earthen floor
And bearskins hanging at the door.

I would have gathered berries bright
For candles fragrantly alight,
And dug for clams and picked the corn
And laid the table smooth and worn.
Or hunted nuts hard-shelled and good
And helped in any way I could,
With time to laugh and play and run
When Indian children came for fun.

And on the first Thanksgiving Day
I would have met with friends to pray
And thank the Lord for all his care
In keeping us together there.

Margaret Hillert

Norman Rockwell  (1894 - 1978)

On this Thanksgiving Day
it seems more important than ever
to count our blessings.
May God bless you and yours
Peace, Good Health, Prosperity and
Much Happiness.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
