Close your eyes and picture this
A Thanksgiving dinner filled with bliss,
Relatives hugging and laughing with cheer
Sounds like cards slapping, and kids playing near

Aromatic scents of cake and apple pie
Ham, dressing, and collards, all side by side,
Deviled eggs filled with pickles and spice
Hot, steaming macaroni only family makes right

Soft textured cornbread, sticky barbecue ribs
Lines and lines of people try to get first dibs
A memorable Thanksgiving, where family members spend time
A Thanksgiving tradition passed down the line.
