Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving
Working men, and
Working women,
And
Children,
Who are left behind
Happy Thanksgiving
Street’s poets,
Happy Thanksgiving
Low-wage happy face,
And the running delivery man

Happy Thanksgiving
Singles,
Single mothers,
Single fathers,
And lonely adventurer
In the wilderness.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Streets,
Trees,
Lakes,
Mountains
Forests,
And prairies
Of America

Happy Thanksgiving,
Sisters and fathers
In the big churches
Or in their tiniest houses
Happy Thanksgiving
Soldier,
Policeman,
And firefighter.
Happy Thanksgiving
My friends
My street mates
My Café mates,
My bus mates,
Who is watching me
And I did not notice.
Happy Thanksgiving
Who is sleeping,
And who is dreaming,
Who is on the road,
Who is traveling
By
Plane,
Boat,
Car,
Or who is orbiting
Around the planet.

Happy Thanksgiving
Mexicans,
Africans,
Asians,
And the European:
The first who came
And the last who are trying.
Happy Thanksgiving
The lost and found
Happy Thanksgiving given Native America
Happy Thanksgiving to the lost and found
Happy Thanksgiving
Seniors,
Men,
Women,
Teens,
Children,
And new born babies.

Happy Thanksgiving Eileen.
Happy Thanksgiving
America.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
