Thanksgiving

One day is there of the series

Termed Thanksgiving day,

Celebrated part at table,

Part in memory.

 

Neither patriarch nor pussy,

I dissect the play;

Seems it, to my hooded thinking,

Reflex holiday.

 

Had there been no sharp subtraction

From the early sum,

Not an acre or a caption

Where was once a room,

 

Not a mention, whose small pebble

Wrinkled any bay,--

Unto such, were such assembly,

'T were Thanksgiving day.

 

Thanksgiving Day

Emily Dickinson
