Thanksgiving and Tom Hanks..............


Well I had no idea what to blog today, and Julie recommended that I say the things I'm thankful for. Instead of doing a list, I decided to write it in poem form.

Here's your Thanksgiving Eve Poem:
Thanksgiving is coming
is the shopping all done?
Or in the morning,
Will you be making.........
another store run?

And did you remember to invite
your priest and your nun

Scratch that last line,
It might not make it much fun

I love Thanksgiving, it's a time to
give thanks
I'm thankful for Family, Friends,
Freedom,
and also Tom Hanks!

Tom Hanks you might ask?
What's does that mean?
You remember "Castaway"
He had nothing to live off
You may recall that movie, that scene?

He was alone and a mess,
and
really, not very clean

We have hot water and food,
people who care about us
We have planes, trains, and automobiles,
not to mention the bus.

We should remember these things,
When we put up a fuss.

We have Hi-Def TV
With 300 channels or more
Instead of sand on an island
We have hard-wooden floors

Do I need to go on?,
Do I need to say more?

Our Cell phones, our Wii's
our Computers with Ram
Our IPODS, Our Blackberries,
Our Digital Cams

Our Potatoes with gravy
not to mention our...........
Thanksgiving Day Yams

We are blessed in our lives,
by everyday things
The flowers that grow,
children
that sing,

People that smile,
Even bee's that may sting

For pictures and memories
of times that have past
The days that we have
and the years that go fast

And those pains we experience
are temporary, they will fade
and not last

Tom Hanks, well he had
"Wilson",
that the waters did send
A beat up old Volleyball,
His only true friend

Do you see what I'm saying,
Are you seeing a trend?

We have so much to appreciate
We are blessed everyday
I know we have trials,
They surely won't stay,

Let us all be thankful
On Thanksgiving day!

All of us at Cosmo Cricket sincerely wish each of you the great things in life and a very happy Thanksgiving! You are our friends and mean so much to us. We love reading the funny things you say, the experiences you have, even learning about your crazy relatives.

God Bless!!!!

Oh my.

How you wrapped up the reason for Thanksgiving in a poem including Tom Hanks is really quite remarkable.

Your family should be proud:)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Leanne said...

Ha! Love the poem. I never would have guessed you could create a poem about Thanksgiving with a Castaway theme, but it is remarkable! Going to share this with my rugrats...thanks Mr.Lindsay!

This is just absolutely awesome how you wrote a Thanksgiving poem with Tom Hanks included. But it really is a good comparison of the have and have nots. Thank you for writing and sharing.

What a poet, Lindsay! And did you re-create Wilson? Too cute. I really need to win you, now. I could use a Muse~ : )~ (See, I can rhyme this time).

Oh, I love the Cosmo blog,
especially when Mr. Lindsay is in the house,
He's really oh so funny,
but don't you dare mention a mouse!

He's talks about being fortunate,
and compares it to Tom Hanks,
Mr. Linday, you are interesting and clever,
and for that reason I give thanks!

To all of those at Cosmo Cricket,
have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day,
and remember that next week,
on Wednesday we should NOT weigh!
