T his is the time when we can recall
H ow the Indians and Pilgrims got together that Fall
A nd shared their bounty at a Country Ball.
N otwithstanding did they forestall,
S cenes of life later to be under a pall.
G etting along was their joyous call
I n giving thanks for the corn ~ so tall.
N ow...shops are decorated in every mall
G arishly enticing wares for one and all.

D one in a tasteful way it may be a treat
A nd remind us, as the date approaches, that we will fete.
Y et, let us not forget to thank the Lord for what we eat!
