Thanksgiving Day

By Grace Cornell Tall

Clasp the hands,
Bow the head,
Ask the Lord
To Bless the bread.

Pull the chair
Up to the table,
Eat no more
Than you are able.

Keep your elbows
Off the mats;
Save the leavings
For the cats.

(Ruff, who goes
From chair to chair,
Is getting much more
Than his share!)

Pass the dishes,
Help your mother,
Be sweet and good
To one another.

Then for this day,
Serene, unprankful,
We, your parents,
Will be thankful.
