Thanksgiving will be here soon. I thought I would post a poem I wrote last year on this blog of mine.
Our country will celebrate a holiday, which allows us to have a hearty meal. One of many joyous occasions to be spent with family and friends.
For this post, I thought what I could be thankful for. I decided upon the pilgrims because without them I believe this holiday may have never happened.
But we must remember those people who might not be able to afford a Thanksgiving dinner. This poem is a reminder for those of us who can eat.
I wrote this poem in the cascade form. See if you can see the repetition of lines taken from the first stanza. It doesn’t rhyme, but it has a rhythm that welcomes the serenity for the first holiday of the season. Just look for it under the “Poems/Christmas & Winter” tab.
