I love to do a poem where you feel like you are there yourself. I enjoy doing Holiday Poems. Look for lots coming up soon

( Gather Round The Table )

The turkey smells scrumptious, the aroma fills the house
Aunt Lori dropped the pumpkin pie, and got some on her blouse
The kids run through the hallways, playing hide and seek
Grandpa Joe was drunk again, staggering on his feet

My sister is filled with excitement, she listens to grandpa`s fable
Mom is busy cooking food, so Uncle Bob sets the table
The puppy chases the kitty cat, we all cry with laughter
Cousin John is having problems, trying to hook up the adapter

More family enters the door, I can only remember faces
Grandma Linda kisses my cheek, I wipe off all the traces
The food is done and smells great, my heart begins to race
We all sit down eagerly, and each of us says grace

Memories surround each of us, remembering the past
Laughter and smiles fill the room, turkey gobbled fast
Grandpa Joe falls asleep, his manner is finally stable
Being with friends and family, as we gather round the table
