Twas the night...

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
But I couldn't sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned
The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation
With all of my might.
Tossing and turning
With anticipation
The thought of a snack
Became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen
Flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge
Full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling
So plump and so round.
'Til all of a sudden
I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling
Floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding
And a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees...
Happy eating to all
Pass the cranberries please!
May your stuffing be tasty.
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes 'n gravy
Have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize.
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs.
May your Thanksgiving be blessed.....: )


Happy Thanks giving to you and your family! Thank you for blessing my blog with all your holiday cheer! kt

I'm lovin' your cute poem! It almost reminds me of Harry Potter's nasty aunt (or whatever) that floated away. But in a very cute way, of course.
