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.

Well, PowerPoint is still the No. 1 choice if you are educationally going to teach or demonstrate something. However, it has certain disadvantages such as it is modifiable for anyone, it is inconvenient for cross-platform usage, etc, making people start to search another form that can display & share & transfer their ideas and plans in webpage, email, even everywhere on the internet.
