Celebrate Thanksgiving with a Bit of Poetry!

Turkey day is upon us! Which means that after we are done feasting and giving thanks it is officially time to pull out that Christmas tree, dust off those ornaments, and brace yourselves for holiday shopping! But not before we take a moment to enjoy some Thanksgiving inspired poetry. On this special holiday, I give you Part One of Emily Dickinson's poem One Day is there of the Series. Enjoy it, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving! :)  

Part One: Life by Emily Dickinson

ONE day is there of the series
  Termed Thanksgiving day,
Celebrated part at table,
  Part in memory.
Neither patriarch nor pussy,


  I dissect the play;
Seems it, to my hooded thinking,
  Reflex holiday.
Had there been no sharp subtraction
  From the early sum,


Not an acre or a caption
  Where was once a room,
Not a mention, whose small pebble
  Wrinkled any bay,—
Unto such, were such assembly,


  ’T were Thanksgiving day.
