Come Together 

​Come Together 
The week before Thanksgiving 

Our turkey; fat and bought 

Our money now slim pickings 

A cold, I have caught. 
Bunny balls removed under bed

Windows sparkling and clean

New bedsheets washed and dried

Guest bedroom ready for a queen.
Silverware is polished 

Good china setting out

Dinner candles are burning 

Guests roaming about. 
Family and friends

Hold hands, bowed in place 

Soft words are spoken

We each speak and give grace.
Compliments are flying

Plates filled to the rim

Catching up on the gossip 

Sharing memories of when.
The day went to quick

All are snuggled in bed

My mind starts to swirl

As I think of Christmas ahead.
