As a fleet of pumpkin pies cool,
it seems a perfect moment
to express my gratefulness
for another year of good eating,
and for your interest in such affairs.
May you have a blessed Thanksgiving,
whether you plan to feast with a crowd
or have simpler arrangements.
May we recognize the gift of a meal,
and take time to celebrate
all we are thankful for.
May your list be a lengthly one.
