Thanksgiving Poem


When all the leaves are off the boughs,
And nuts and apples gathered in,
And cornstalks waiting for the cows,
And pumpkins safe in barn and bin,
Then Mother says, "My children dear,
The fields are brown, and autumn flies;
Thanksgiving Day is very near,
And we must make thanksgiving pies!

Yes, William Sonoma is expensive. Sometimes, it is just worth it as in this case.

I have an extensive collection of Thanksgiving postcards and I have never seen this one before. Plus, I could not find it in a thorough search of eBay.

PS - loved your acorn cakelets.
