A Thanksgiving Moment

Over the River (Thanksgiving Day)
By Linda Maria Child

Over the river and through the wood 

To Grandmother’s house we go. 

The horse knows the way

To carry the sleigh 

Through white and drifted snow. 



Over the river and through the wood

Oh, how the wind does blow!

It stings the toes

And bites the nose,

As over the ground we go. 



Over the river and through the wood

To have a first-rate play. 

Hear the bells ring,

Ting-a-ling-ling!

Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day! 



Over the river and through the wood,

Trot fast, my dapple gray!

Spring over the ground

Like a hunting hound, 

For this is Thanksgiving Day. 



Over the river and through the wood,

And straight through the barnyard gate.

We seem to go

Extremely slow~

It is so hard to wait! 



Over the river and through the wood~

Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!

Hurrah for fun!

Is the pudding done?

Hurrah for the pumpkin pie! 



Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Peace.
