'Give Thanks'


Last updated 11/24/2006 at Noon

As we gather ’round our table

On our great Thanksgiving Day

Remember those unable

Who are far, far away.

Those engaged in warfare

To help the world be free.

We need to show that we care

Since they’re there for you and me.

Let’s not forget the homeless

Not just people of the street

But families in such great stress

Their losses were complete.

Some have no place to call “home”

No place to rest their heads

They must feel so all alone

And long to have their beds.

As we gather ’round our table

Let’s don’t forget to pray

Be thankful we are able

To count our blessings

On this Thanksgiving Day

Pray for those less fortunate.

Editor’s Note: In the short period of time since Virginia Lentz submitted this poem to the Village News, she has become gravely ill. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
