A Thanksgiving Day Rhyme

Thanksgiving

by Roger W Hancock

 
Thanking God for Covering,
house to live in, sin forgiven.
Thanking God for providing,
food to share, clothes to wear.
Thanking God for everything.


(c) December 1, 2008 Roger W Hancock, www.PoetPatriot.com



American Thanksgiving
      by Roger W Hancock
  
Thanksgiving is the holiday,
to God we give our thanks.
Thanks for founding fathers;
gave us our right to speak.
Thanks for all the blessings;
free travel and assembly.
Thanks to God for America;
free religious liberty.
Thanks for all our families;
of friendship, blood or faith.
Thanks for food that’s plentiful;
we hunger not, nor thirst.
Then again to God our thanks;
Christ’s death, washed our sin.

 (c) November 25, 2008 Roger W Hancock, www.PoetPatriot.com  
 


  
Thanks Always

            by Roger W Hancock

 

Thanks we give for many things,

For health, prosperity, and love,

Loved ones; family and friends.

 

Blessings; food and home,

Even for our excess wealth,

Thanks to God for all the gifts.

 

Think of Job of way back then,

Wealth, health, and family;

For much he gave, our thanks.

 

Staying thankful to our Lord,

When all was stripped away;

Wealth, health and family.

 

“Naked came I, Naked I’ll go.”

“God Giveth, God taketh,”

“Blessed is His name.”

 

When all is lost, naked stand,

Will we praise and place our trust,

On Him who gives us life?

Thanksgiving Remembrance

                         by Roger W Hancock

 

Life lived in obliqueness of apathy,

Oblivious of the blessing surrounding us all.

Blessings of living just open our eyes.

The sky, trees, flowers, our feet on solid ground,

In poverty riches abound for those who see his sound.

Listen, look in peaceful quiet,  

The Prince, the King, the Son who died.

Food on the table envy to others,

Give thanks to the author of all.

Remember the lean times, remember the good times,

In all things give thanks for all that you have.

There’s always another who’s lot is less fortunate,

You could be in his place, give thanks for yours.

Life a fleeting memory of one plucked rose,

Your life pressed between time’s pages.

Gratitude is due to the One, who supplies,

Love that fills our bodies, our minds.

Where you are is not your own doing,

The hand on nature is the hand on you.

Remember the blessing remember the past,

The One who maintains that your future lasts.

Each day be one of thanks for all,

This day, the feast, family and friends.

For all and for this, I am thankful to God.

        Thanksgiving

                 by Roger W Hancock

 

At Plymouth Rock the pilgrims land.

The first winter tough, over half had died.

New found friends of the Indians made,

the Wampanoags generosity provided aid.

 

Seeds were sown, harvest reaped by hand,

the tribe teaching ways to work the land.

Fish to richen earth, for the corn to grow,

cooperation proof for a great land to show.

 

Invite of the tribe to show them care,

who came with their own food to share.

Living together that first experiment,

shows it possible, gave encouragement.

 

Thanksgiving for the harvest filled,

thankfulness to God who multiplies.

Their gratitude for having survived,

thanks for friends and God’s supplies.

 

Holiday tradition now in America,

turkey, dressings, and all the trimmings.

Family, friends, employment all,

we give our thanks to God for life.

Forgetting Thanks

              By Roger W Hancock  

 

 Leaves changing colors fading,

gliding wind, to next man’s land.

Various seasons round the world,

whispers of Winter Solstice,

in neighbor’s fall colored blanket.

Miracle of beauty, color’s death,

life to death dismembered leaves.

Human life with trials change,

changing mood by colored trials.

Those in solace, God’s solstice,

thanks remembered, given,

provisions given remembered.

Board game, table cleared, sharing,

last spring’s flowered mood.

Lighted screen sporting games,

vegetating blanket leaves.

Selfishness prevails without,

remembrance in every thought,

God’s prevailing solstice bought,

life to share in winter’s care.

In gobbling the gobbler,

white meat or dark meat,

family, friends, round table,

gathered, enjoying, forgetting,

‘til…   next…   year’s…   feast.

Not  Free

by Roger W Hancock
  
Nothing is ever free,

though to you it be.

Somewhere, somehow,

someone paid.
