Happy Thanksgiving from the Archives!

Holiday Season

Thanksgiving is gone and over

The Turkey is in the stew

When the pot is empty

What then, will you do?

Mayhap, glance at the calendar

And conceive with joyful delight

That the furious little snowflakes are here

And Christmas is almost in sight

The bearded man will soon take leave

To make place for the young

And soon we'll all be gaily caroling 

A happy Easter song.
