Thank the Pilgrims

Thank the pilgrims for this holiday

How they established a great feast

They set the standards for America

To be shared with those we love

 

That was the prayer I learned

Every Thanksgiving as a child

To not take any meal for granted

Thank the pilgrims for this holiday

 

In school when I learned history

That the pilgrims had a vision

To blend two cultures at a table

How they established a great feast

 

When I got older the world changed

But the pilgrims’ will still echo

And managed to come full circle

They set the standards for America

 

As we come together today to eat

We are reminded of what is a home

That the pilgrims gave us a gift

To be shared with those we love
