Thanksgiving

Gratitude
Relief
And hope
The unseen
Banquet fare
Weary travelers
In unknown lands
Praised God
Who brought them there
The locals
Offered food
And wisdom
To survive
Love of neighbor
And gracious hearts
Kept the strangers
Long alive
This it seems
Is the heritage
Of the country
Now called home
By the children
Of the travelers
Who found bread
Instead of stones
