Thanksgiving Poem

A Poem by Jay Ligda

 

Half serving of everything
With respect for each taste
Eaten twice as slow
Nothing goes to waist
 
Food is God
With attention each bite
I take in his goodness
And reverence will ignite
 
Twenty minutes to pass
Before refilling my plate
I will just say “no”
To Holiday weight
 
So I sit in gratitude
On this gluttonous night
Health is what’s central
To last all my life
 
I’ll enjoying the meal
But know this godsend
The true source of joy
Are my family and friends
