Thanksgiving poetry is a bit harder to find than, say, Christmas poetry. But between the poetry in verse found in Thanksgiving music and other various Thanksgiving poems, you are certain to find something uplifting.

The following little rhyme was taken from the book entitled "History Stories for Children" written by Dr. John Wayland.
You'll want to keep in mind that the original Thanksgiving feast lasted for a full 3 days! That kind of a grateful celebration sounds like a marvelous idea to me.
Night and morn
Shocks of corn
Stood 'round Plymouth Town;
Then a freeze
Nipped the trees,
And the nuts came down.
Late that fall
Came to Plymouth Town,
There to eat
Corn bread sweet
And turkey roasted brown.
Seved at Plymouth Town.
Cakes and pies,
Bakes and fries,
And turkey roasted brown!
All the men
To the feast sat down;
Three whole days
Thanks and praise
Rose to God on high.
