Thanksgiving Poem

“The Pilgrims Came”

By Annette Wynne

The Pilgrims came across the sea,

And never thought of you and me;

And yet it’s very strange the way

We think of them Thanksgiving Day.

We tell their story, old and true,

Of how they sailed across the blue,

And found a new land to be free

And built their homes quite near the sea.

Every child knows well the tale

Of how they bravely turned the sail,

And journeyed many a day and night,

To worship God as they thought right.

The people think that they were sad,

And grave; I’m sure that they were glad–

They made Thanksgiving Day–that’s fun–

We thank the Pilgrims, every one!
