"Warm ThanksGiving Day"

Turkey in the oven.
Hands on basting and rubbing.
All adults on deck for setting the table.
Not a seat empty for even a child so able.
Knocks on the door as family arrives.
So happy Mom's in the kitchen, now we'll survive.
Getting the TV all warmed up for a day of football.
In and out the kids run up and down the hall.
Velvet cake hides behind the fruit not seen.
In comes the family passing through the kitchen with gleam.
No samples tasted for Mom is the boss.
Getting ready for this meal still a salad to be tossed.

Day begins with smiles and joy.
All fall asleep for the deserts are my toy.
You have to love this day of thanks for Mom and Dad and every girl and boy.

    I can understand why Mom would hide the velvet cake. I'd break into it before dinner. Great memories of Thanksgivings past come in this acrostic, Michael, (especially the football that was always on at our house). Well done! Wishing you success in Dane Ann's contest. Love, Carolyn

    I love how you did yours, you rhymed it like I did with mine! A very good one, one of my favorites I've seen in this theme. LUv, Andrea

    Michael, I'm glad you enjoyed my "Autumn's Last Leaf". Autumn is a great time for poets. I like your Autumn acrostic above. Well done. ~James (MeanderthalMan)
