"The Pumpkin"
"Ah! on Thanksday, when from East and from West,
From North and from South comes the pilgrim and guest;
When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his beard
The old broken links of affection restored;
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before;
What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye,
What calls back the past like the rich Pumpkin pie?"
John Greenleaf Whittier 1850

I could no longer keep multiple blogs going. That didn't come out right since I do have more than one. I can't keep different types of blogs going. They all have to say the same!
