My Grandmother wrote this in 1952, as you can see, way before it was 'cool' to be Patriotic. She has many great poems that I just love, but this one just might be my favorite...


Thanksgiving


We thank Thee, Lord, with humble heart
For blessings this day of home and hearth.
For sun and wind and glittering stars
For bounty in this land of ours.
For Freedom to worship without fear,
For children’s laughter, bright and clear.
For our Flag unfurled against the blue,
For our trees garbed in autumn hues.
Our hearts overflow with gratitude to Thee,
For the privilege of living in the “land of the free”.

Copyright © Nov., 1952 Eunice R. Lewis
