A Thanksgiving feast poem

On the night before Thanksgiving….

The tables were out with bright little chairs.

And napkins, and plates, and bright orange silverware.

So the children could set their table with care…

And sit down together with a meal to share…

I am thankful for the children who are in my care…

From my preschoolers to others everywhere….

Happy Thanksgiving!
