My Thanksgiving poem:

Thanksgiving 2015

Twas the day before Thanksgiving and all around the basin,
Folks basked in the sun and went about pacin.

Tomorrow was T-Day and so it had been heard,
Loopers and others were invited to a locals house to feast on some bird.

They just happened to be here in Port St. Joe,
and countless others gathered everywhere in places we all know.

So they left the marina and boats they knew well
to venture on land, visit new friends, and feel swell.

They were asked to bring nothing, just come over and visit,
a welcome respite from their ongoing transit.

Their hosts were so generous all they wanted to hear,
were “Tall Tales” full of good cheer.

It reminded the Loopers of something they knew well,
that wonderful hearts are everywhere, so on that we will dwell!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Al Speyer
