When I worked at the library, I ran a kids club called Afterschool Authors. Wednesday afternoons we read and brainstormed and wrote together, sometimes poetry, sometimes adventure, sometimes nonsense. Each year around this time, we put together a group Thankful Poem.
Everyone knows humans are thankful for friends and family. Cats are thankful for saucers of milk, and bears for honey. But it’s fun to think how a book might be thankful for a reader, a finger for a sparkling ring, and a star for someone with a wish. Try it! Pencils, of course, are always thankful for poets.
