The Boy's Thanksgiving Day
Poet: John Franklin Bair

Thanksgiving Day, Thanksgiving Day!
We boys are happy, free and gay;
No school today, and Oh, the sun
Is shining bright, now for some fun;
The air's just cool enough today
For boys to romp and race and play,
We'll roam the meadows, climb the hill,
With laughter we the air will fill.

Kind mother will prepare a roast,
A turkey gobbler, none can boast
Of better grub than our's today,
When we come rushing in from play,
And see old gobbler done so brown,
Upon the table, we'll sit down
And smack our lips and go um, um,
And say, Please mother, give me some.

Then, while we eat, mother will say,
Boys, we must not forget today,
That there are poor who cannot eat
Such meals as ours, that we must treat
All such with kindness, try to make
Them happy, then we say, We'll take
Some good things to old Aunty Moore,
For she is sick and very poor.

Then, after we have ate our fill,
With basket filled, across the hill
We go and soon we reach the door
Of the small house of Aunty Moore.
It is a treat to see her face
Light up with joy when we boys place
The good things all before her there,
And hear her say, "Well, I declare!"

Then out again to run about,
With merry laughter, cheer and shout;
O we just have such splendid sport,
The day for us is much too short;
But ev'ning comes at last, and so,
All hungry, we to supper go,
Then soon all sound asleep are we,
The day is now but memory.
