Fantastic! I needed these. Thanks.

My favorite Thanksgiving poem (and one of my favorite poems for any season), is John Berryman's Dream Song 385, that begins "My daughter's heavier. Light leaves are flying..."

Also, the link that says it's to John Ashbery actually leads to a poem by John Berryman.

Pattiann Rogers' "Geocentric" is one of my stand-by gratitude poems. Read it here:

David Graham

Maybe we should schedule a group reading featuring John Ashbery, John Berryman, John Ash, and Wendell Berry.

But John Berryman's dead!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
