10 Short Thanksgiving Poems

Happy Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving Day of 2013 is on the 28th of November. On the Thanksgiving Day, families and friends will enjoy a big dinner together. Some people will send card to their friends, and some people will tell the story of Thanksgiving to their kids. A short poem on the card will be better than the plain words; and some short poems can easily be understood by the kids. Therefore, some short Thanksgiving poems may be necessary on that festival. Here are millions of poems for the Thanksgiving Day, but I only select 10 of them. If you want to make an e-card or tell the kids about Thanksgiving, these poems will be helpful.

1.
T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learnt to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude… our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me

2. Funny Bird

A turkey is a funny bird,
Its head goes wobble, wobble,
All it knows is just one word,
“Gobble, gobble, gobble.”

3. We Thank Thee

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky;
For pleasant shade of branches high;
For fragrant air and cooling breeze;
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

4.
The tear another’s tears bring forth,
The sigh which answers sigh,
The pulse that beats at other’s woes,
E’en though our own be nigh,

A balm to bathe the wounded heart
Where sorrow’s hand hath lain,
The link divine from soul to soul
That makes us one in pain,

Sweet sympathy, benignant ray,
Light of the soul doth shine;
In it is human nature givin
A touch of the divine.

5. It’s That Time, Again

The days are getting shorter now.
I feel a snow flake on my brow.
The leaves are crackling as I run,
The squirrels’ searching almost done.
The turkey’s restless in the pen,
Oh! No! I see my breath again!
It makes a person take a pause
And think about old Santa Claus!!!

6.
Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, – a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.

7.
Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off’rings, and a thankful strain.

8.
He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.

9.
Without Thy sunshine and Thy rain
We could not have the golden grain;
Without Thy love we’d not be fed;
We thank Thee for our daily bread.

10.
When all the leaves are off the boughs,
And nuts and apples gathered in,
And cornstalks waiting for the cows,
And pumpkins safe in barn and bin,
Then Mother says, “My children dear,
The fields are brown, and autumn flies;
Thanksgiving Day is very near,
And we must make thanksgiving pies!”

These poems are easy to be understood, and they are good for kids to know more about this festival. If the e-card (generally SWF files) cannot be played on your smartphone or tablet, you can convert SWF to GIF files, and then you are able to view the e-card on your smartphone or tablets with ease.

Why a Smartwatch is necessary?

Why a Smartwatch is Necessary

It is likely that the wearable smart devices are noticed by all the giants of smart devices. Sony, Samsung, Apple and Google are all preparing for their special-designed wearable devices. Sony has released the Smartwatch 2, and it will be available in the Q3 of 2013. Samsung is going to unveil the Samsung Gear in the September, and this smartwatch is also full of Samsung elements. Google has unveiled its Google Glass, and the Google Watch is seemed to be under testing. As for Apple, it is believed that the fruit company will develop the smartwatch because it has hired the Nike FuelBand Consultant Jay Blahnik, and supplied the technology patent named “Bi-Stable Spring with Flexible Display” as early as 2011. The times of wearable smart devices is coming. But are you ready for it?

A piece of news reported by the Guardian days ago flashed through my mind: England has banned the driver to wear Google Glass while driving, because they are afraid of the Google Glass distracting the drivers’ attentions. It’s reasonable in this period, because the drivers would be addicted to the fantastic contents of the Google Glass. But what if the road condition becomes more complicated in the coming years? It would be necessary for the drivers to wear this Google Glass with the built-in GPS or Voice Navigation to avoid traffic jams.

The smartwatches are also going to be necessities for people’s daily life. It is said that the smartwatches will have most of the functions that the smartphones have, and people can use them notice themselves of the important appointments or other issues. The smartwatch will also provide help in the meeting room. When an unexpected phone call comes in, the smartwatch will block the call and send messages to the caller. Maybe more useful functions will be applied in the smartwatches, and they will change the life our life.

Concept: iWatch

But why the technologies are applied to the wrist watch? It is not hard to answer: The wrist watch has already been a part of our lives. Whatever you are, a businessman or a simple worker, if you wear a wrist watch, it is believed that you care about time and cherish it. So most people have wrist watches, and they have adapted to wear watches every day. And a wrist watch may also symbolize your social location. Some rich men like wearing and collecting famous and luxury watches to identify their values. All in all, a wrist watch is now a necessary utility of our daily lives, whether you are rich or poor, you have a wrist watch along with you, and that may have already been a habit.

So will the smartwatch. The smartwatch will not only be the watch, but also be a good utility for your smartphone and tablets, even the PC. Although the concept of “smartwatch” is created by those corporations that develop smart devices, it will be helpful in our future lives. The smartwatch is also customizable. Customers can customize the appearance of the smartwatch, the apps on the smartwatch and other features of the smartwatch, so it seems like the smartwatch is just unique to you. Maybe someday you can also download Youtube videos and convert them to MP4 files for playing on your smartwatch. Some of the smartwatches are available in the market now, you can choose one from the Pebble, Martian and MetaWatch, they are all famous smartwatch providers.

For Mother’s Day: A Letter to My Mother

On this special day, please let me thank you for all the things you have done for me, you are the best mother that a son ever has!

Happy Mother's Day

Dear mom,

I’m very happy that I can have a chance to write you a letter. I have been far away from home for nearly a year, and tried to earn my own life. The world is so big for me to discover, the night is so long for me not to be homesick, and the work is so hard for me to carry on. But I am still trying my best for what I’m doing, because I want to make you proud, and someday you can get rid of that heavy work and relax yourself for a while.

You are a great woman that I have ever known, you are the one that I will love for all my lifetime. You teach me to be tolerant when people hurts unintentionally, be patient when things go tough, and be honest when I make mistakes. These characteristics are along with me and will be along with my whole life. I still remember that every time I go home, you ask me to eat more because I once complained to you about the food in school’s canteens, I usually eat up all the dishes you make as they are so delicious. If without “m” for “mother” and “y” for “youth” in the “family”, my life would only have “fail” left, so thank you my dear mother, for every delicious meal you make for our family, for the housework you do to make the house clean and tidy, for every single minute you accompany me when I have a nightmare.

When I was in middle school, sometimes my temper was out of control, I shouted at you for some meaningless things or some unreasonable requirements, you gave me more than enough tolerance and didn’t scold me, just told me what fact was to make me back to normal. Come to think about it now, I was wrong and maybe hurt you at that time, I get to know what your tears are for. I’m sorry my dear mother, I owe you an apology for so many years. Now I have grown up, I know what I should do to make you happy.

This mother’s day is for the greatest woman in the world, if I could go home, I would buy you a bunch of carnations, and make a video converted from many Flash cards by myself for you. You always say little but do a lot for me, that’s what I could never learn. I hope someday you can relax yourself for a while, go out to do your favorite things, and chat with your friends. You have burdened yourself with all the things of the family for so long, maybe now it’s the time for you to put them down and enjoy your life. From the time I could remember a word, you had been in work, until now, I am able to earn my own life, you are still in work. Thank you mom, for all the time you spend on me, and for my growth.

Now I get to know the meaning of that sentence: “A mother’s love is like a circle, it has no beginning and no ending. It keeps going around and around ever expanding, touching everyone who comes in touch with it. Engulfing them like the morning mist, warming them like the noontime sun, and covering them like a blanket of evening stars.” Yes, mother’s love keeps going, wherever I am, whatever my age is, however difficult situation I may meet with, mom is always by my side. Mother gave me my life, fed me up to a man and now wants me to succeed. Mom’s love is selfless, so when it’s not too late, I want to let you know that I love you and sincerely thank you.

Your son,

Webber
