Thanksgiving Must Be Near
When autumn's leaves pepper down 
And anxiety shows on ole Tom's face; 
Then the Roger’s plan a trip out of town 
To visit relatives and share table grace. 
When kids plan for a mini vacation, 
Our country readies the celebration; 
Then America chooses to remember 
That day long ago in November. 
When gratitude permeates the air 
And humbled hearts offer prayer; 
Then Thanksgiving must be near. 

When Sam O'Neil portrays John Smith, 
And Inga proudly becomes Pocahontas; 
As history dispels the modern myth, 
While at fidgety kids, teachers fuss. 
When strangers hold hands to pray to God 
And thank Him for freedom's sod. 
When the community extends a hand 
And kindness covers this blessed land.
When gratitude permeates the air 
And humbled hearts offer prayer; 
Then Thanksgiving must be near.
