A Little Bit of This and That

Thanksgiving Day is here again,

And there is much

noise in the kitchen;

Plenty work for me.

Turkey and lots of things

I must now make in the kitchen;

It is a pleasure for me.

Cakes and many pies already stand in a row in the kitchen.

Oh, it makes me sweat.

The children all come home,

And I bet they will act the same as they did in the kitchen.

Oh, it makes me laugh.

Before we eat, we pray,

Later we swap our

recipes in the kitchen;

Plenty happiness for me.

Thanksgiving Day came and went;

Good words planted and said in the kitchen;

It is all so pleasurable for me.
