A HAPPY DAY
by Merle S. Foote

We’re going out to Grandma’s
When Thanksgiving’s here
She’s sure to have turkey —
She does most every year —
And cake and pie or pudding
And everything that’s nice.
Thanksgiving’s such a happy day,
I wish it would come twice!

THANKSGIVING
by Constance Q. Mills

The pumpkins are yellow,
Harvest time is here,
All the crops are gathered
Now, for the coming year.
Knowing God the Father
Send us all our food,
Gratefully we bow our heads,
In deepest gratitude.
Voicing our thanksgiving,
In sharing of our board.
Neighbors, friends and relatives,
Give thanks to Thee, oh Lord.
