November Day - a Poem by Grant Stilp

Grant - 11 years - December 2012
My son Grant (11 years, 6th grade) has been writing poetry lately.  These poems are school assignments and not his favorite kind of writing, but they're good.  This one was published in the Club Herald, a district wide newspaper for kids.

November Day
by Grant Stilp

My eyes snap open It's here
we're gonna leave I get to see them
it's time, November is the time
Now we're driving
huh, so boring
look out the window
trees are dropping their leaves
it's time, November is the time
I see them 
we're here
mmmm I smell pumpkin pie
and hot chocolate!
it's time November is the time
It's Thanksgiving day
the turkey is cooking
nice and warm inside
grave and windy outside
it's time November is the time
here comes the turkey
mmm it smells so good
giving thanks
it's time November is the time
Friends and family
colorful trees
yummy food
a time of thanks and gratitude
when we come together
and remember all the things we've been given
it's time November is the time.
