Thanksgiving



by Ivy O. Eastwick



 



Thank you



For all my hands can hold-


Apples red,


And melons gold,


Yellow corn


Both ripe and sweet,


Peas and beans


So good to eat!


 


 


Thank you


For all my eyes can see-


Lovely sunlight,


Field and tree,


White cloud-boats


In sea-deep sky,


Soaring bird


And butterfly.


 


 


Thank you


For all my ears can hear-


Birds’ song echoing


Far and near,


Songs of little


Stream, big sea,


Cricket, bullfrog,


Duck and bee!

Thanksgiving

K.O

Thank you

For all my hands can hold

Now I can go out in the cold

The turkey pan comes out to be sold

Holding apples in my hand

Now it makes me want some ham





Thank you

For all my eyes can see

Now I can see a bee

Seeing Van Go art

Now I want Polaco’s art

Seeing toes in the snow

Then I want to go





Thank you

For all my ears can hear

Now I hear seagulls on the beach

Hearing potato chips break in to pieces

My cousin said now hear waves crashing

That’s all I want thank you that’s good

Thank you



For all my hands can hold



Pumpkin pie



Cookie cakes



And rattle snakes.



 



 



Thank you



For all my eyes can see



Leaves falling from a tree



Waves in the ocean



Sand on the beach.



 



 



 



Thank you



For all my ears can hear



Music on my iPod



The air in my air hockey table



And the waves crashing on the shore.

Thanksgiving

By Wd

Thank you

For all my hands can hold

My kitten when I am cold

My dad’s warm hand

My stuffed dog, Snow

Thank you,

For all my eyes can see

Squirrels scurrying to build their nest

The beautiful changing colors in the trees

Pumpkin pie baking in the oven

Thank you

For all my ears can hear

The wind blowing in my ear

The sound of a motor running

The leaves whispering in the trees

To see art work and to see colors.

Listening to music, to birds singing and listening to the end of the day bell ring

Thank you



For all my hands can hold,



Books that give me the definition of bold.



I hold love in my heart



I will never let it part.



Wrapping my arms around my mom



Next comes my dad holding out his palm.



 



Thank you



For all my eyes can see,



Waves on the beach that call to me.



Family and friends, they show me love



There words come out as sweet as a dove.



Horses running and grazing



Makes me really see them blazing.



 



Thank you 



For all my ears can hear



Everything as sweet as Apollos lyre.



Wave’s crash



I just want to run in and make a splash!



Laughs from people who I know



Smiles coming to and fro.

A cup of pure cold water,



Fresh fruit nice and ripe

About the Blogger

I am a third grader and I just turned nine. I live with my brother, James, who gives me nightmares, my dad, my mom, and my dog, Bear. She likes to roll on her back. Bear’s a chocolate lab and she’s so cute!! I love to go outside, so does Bear. She and I love to play fetch! I like to ride my bike around the block at my beach house with our friends we met there last summer in 2009. It’s safe there so we can ride at night and our parents stay inside and talk. Sometimes even our COUSINS come down to play the game!!! Even our friend Lauren, and her two sisters, and another girl named Naomi. Wow, ten whole people!!!!!!!! We play a nighttime game called… I don’t know. Anyway some kids chase, some kids GET chased. Once the chasers get every runner, we trade positions for round 2. It’s a little hard when we play it around the block, It takes about a half hour to finish a round. We also go to the beach every day. My favorite animal is a dog, and my favorite color is red. I love to read and draw. I sometimes go tubing in my family’s boat. That is all about me.
