Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving. A poem by Ivy O. Eastwick.
Thank you for all my hands can hold,
apples red, and melons gold, yellow corn both ripe and sweet,
peas and beans so good to eat!
Thank you for all my eyes can see
lovely sunlight, field and tree, white cloud-boats
in sea-deep sky, soaring bird and butterfly.
Thank you for all my ears can hear
birds' song echoing far and near, songs of little stream, big sea, cricket, bullfrog,
duck and bee!

Thanksgiving Magic. A poem by Rowena Bastin Bennett.
Thanksgiving Day I like to see our cook perform her witchery. She
turns a pumpkin into pie as easily as you or I can wave a hand or wink an eye.
She takes left over bread and muffin and changes them to turkey stuffen'. She
changes cranberries to sauce and meats to stews and stews to broths;
And when she mixes gingerbread it turns into a man instead
with frosting collar 'round his throat and raisin buttons down his coat. Oh, like some
magic made by wands, and some read magic out of books, and some like fairy
spells and charms but I like magic made by cooks!

Today was Thanksgiving Day, so I decided to do these two poems. We also took out our big fold-out table. In this picture the table is all set up.
From Pictureka!

Then here are the pies. On the right, you'll see apple pie that Marina made (With my help!). On the left, you'll see a chocolate with regular whipped cream and vanilla with chocolate whipped cream.
And now for separate. Apple pie by Marina.

Chocolate with regular whipped cream and vanilla with chocolate whipped cream. Oh! And it also has chocolate biscotti crumbs on top. Mom calls it a black and white custard cream pie. Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. What beautiful poems and very appropriate! Just looking at those pies makes me hungry - especially the black/white custard cream. I bet that pie just melted in your mouth. Happy Thanksgiving. Love, Aunt Linda

  2. What a nice surprise those poems were! I am so glad you appreciate poetry and had a yummy Thanksgiving. I missed you! Love, Grandma

  3. If you are anything like me, I know you had a great time for thanksgiving. The choice of your poems were perfect for the occasion.
    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Love, Buelo
