By George Parsons Lathrop revised by Kristina Harding
Valleys lay in sunny vapor,
Along with a radiance mild was shed
From each tree that they like a taper
In a feast was. Only then do we stated,
"Our feast, too, shall soon be spread,
Of excellent Thanksgiving poultry."
And already still November
Drapes her snowy table here.
Fetch a log, then coax the ember
Fill your hearts with old-time cheer
Paradise be thanked for an additional pair year,
And our Thanksgiving poultry!
Welcome, siblings – all of our party
Collected within the homestead old!
Shake the snow off with hearty
Hands-shakes drive away the cold
Else your plate you’ll hardly hold
Of excellent Thanksgiving poultry.
Once the skies are sad and murky,
‘Tis a contented factor to satisfy
Round this homely roast of poultry –
Pilgrims, pausing simply to greet,
Then, with serious elegance, to consume
A brand new Thanksgiving poultry.
And also the merry feast is freighted
Using its meanings true and deep.
Individuals we have loved and individuals we have hated,
All, to-day, the rite could keep,
All, to-day, their dishes heap
With plump Thanksgiving poultry.
