MILLER THANKSGIVING POEM BY JOHN GREENLEAF WHITT1ER O N the banks of the XeuO the dark Spanish maiden Comes up -with the fruit of tbe tangled vine laden. And the creor~ _ Cuba laughs out to behold Through orange leaves shining the broad spheres of gold. Yet -with dearer delight from his home In the north On the fields of his harvest the Yankee looks forth. Where crooknecks are coiling and yellow fruit shines And the sun of September melts down on his vines. Ah. on Thanksgiving day. -when from east and from west. From north and from south, comes the pilgrim and guest; When the gray haired New Ens-lander sees round his board The old broken Jinks of affection restored r 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? Oh. fruit loved of boyhood, the old days recalling. When -wood grapes -were purpling and brown nuts were falling; When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin. Glaring out through the dark, with a candle within: When we laughed round the corn heap, 'with hearts all to tune. 'Our chair s broad pumpkin, our lantern the moon. Telling tales of the fairy -who traveled like steam In a pumpkin shell coach, with two rats for her team I Then thanks for thy present. None sweeter nor better E'er smoked from an oven aor circled a platter. Fairer hands never ·wrought at a pastry more fine; Brighter eyes never ·watched o'er its baking than thine. And the prayer which my mouth is too full to express Swells my heart that thy shadow may never be less. That the days of thy lot may be lengthened below. And the fame of thy worth like a pumpkin vine And thy life be as sweet, and its last sunset sky Golden tinted and fair as thy own pumpkin pie. at the youa_ mending a harness strap beside tbe! liave - vou v " itb lis ' We ^ . ... · ._ _*. ,,, . . 1 «;st. :nd vre're used to having eoai- blnziag beartb.
