It starts this evening, in the winter flaw— seeking new prophets, modern sites to cherish, finding divinities in earthly powers. In black mourn I, all fears scorn I; Love hath forlorn me, living in thrall: Heart is bleeding, all help needing, O cruel speeding, fraughted with gall. I found the sorting and shaping of words another way to journey into myself and deepen my experience. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, school nurse, colleague, friend and neighbor. Heart hath his hope, and eyes their wished sight; Sorrow changed to solace, and solace mixed with sorrow; For why, she sighed and bade me come tomorrow.

Hi Misty, I did a really quick search and found these poems. Unknown Giving Thanks For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped, For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped, For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb, For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home — Thanksgiving!
A friend of my 3rd grade son read me this one his teacher gave his class at PS. Father in heaven , We thank thee For flowers that bloom about our feet, For tender grass, so fresh and sweet, For song of bird and hum of bee, For all things fair we hear or see— Father in heaven, we thank thee!
For blue of stream, for blue of sky, For pleasant shade of branches high, For fragrant air and cooling breeze, For beauty of the blowing trees— Father in heaven, we thank thee! For mother—love, for Father—care, For brothers strong and sisters fair, For love at home and school each day, For guidance lest we go astray— Father in heaven, we thank thee! October 30, at am.

HollyS Participant. Jack Prelutsky has a book of silly Thanksgiving poems.
Your library may have it. Hoffman had planned to set out in mid-March, but was forced to delay her departure for almost ten days because of snow.
She also had to contend with a week of freezing temperatures and one rainy night spent sleeping on what she thought was a baseball diamond but turned out to be a fracking pad. For Hoffman, who has been outspoken against the coal industry since seeing her hometown woods ravaged by strip mines, this felt like a particularly cruel joke. One poem was written after a young woman Hoffman met outside of Batavia, Ohio, twenty-one-year-old Ariel Saleen Knoechelman, was struck and killed by a car while walking a part of the trail that Hoffman had covered just days earlier.
Their aim, she says, is to be healing for people, and to bring a sense of connection. Hoffman is keeping a blog of her pilgrimage poetrypilgrimproject.
A similar literary pilgrimage—the project of New York City blogger Ed Champion, who planned to walk from Brooklyn to San Francisco while writing essays—was recently canceled after its Indiegogo campaign failed to meet its fund-raising goal. Funding issues aside, Hoffman is pressing on.
