Pumpkin Pie: Orange and spicy, with a dollop of whip, I sure am yummy!
Turkey: Stuffed and roasted, I crown your table where I am toasted!
TV: All day abuzz with the latest scores, I also take in those after-dinner snores!
Football: Tossed in the air from side to side, the winner I’ll decide!
Leaves: Colorful and crisp, I fall to the ground with no more than a whisper!
Pilgrim: With a black and white cap, I extend my hand and say thanks with a laugh!
Native American: Bearing maize and goodwill, let’s join together with friends far and near!
Parade: Large giant balloons afloat; if you attend, don’t forget your coat!
