QA Quips #64 - Short, sweet, and to the POINT!

QA Quips 64

Thanksgiving Day by Lydia Maria Child 

Over the river, and through the wood,

  To grandfather's house we go;

       The horse knows the way

       To carry the sleigh

  Through the 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


  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 barn-yard 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 the fun!

       Is the pudding done?

  Hurrah for the pumpkin-pie!

(Bet you didn't know the whole poem, but now, you do! You're welcome.)
