Response to the Poetic Bloomings Sunday prompt.
Not Quite as Good
We will come together at the table
Again for the season,
Much the same as last year
And so many years past;
Giving hesitant thanks for
Blessings so often overlooked.
Table full of so many favorites;
Turkey, cranberries for Dad,
Dressing, gravy and greens for me and Sis.
Ham and fruit salad for my wife and kids
Along with green beans seasoned with pork –
Don’t dare forget the crescent rolls.
The sweet potatoes, everyones favorite,
We know will never be quite as good
As what Grammy would make.
