I’ve discovered that if you google "thanksgiving poems" you get a bunch of truly awful poetry. So here’s my attempt to rectify the matter.
- My favorite remains Raymond Carver’s Gravy, which I posted two years ago.
- I also like Marge Piercy’s The Art of Blessing the Day.
- Here’s a very non-traditional choice for a Thanksgiving poem, by Louise Gluck, chosen by Annik Stahl.
May you have a Thanksgiving day full of warm thoughts and good smells.
