On first thanksgiving at Plymouth,

With prayers on lips
There stood the priest,
Thanking the Lord,
For food, for harvest,
For wine so blessed,

There at Plymouth,
Faces with hunger also stayed,
People starving, skeleton like,
With hands into their mouth,

The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth.

(Note: the painting attached was by the historical painter, Jennie Augusta Brownscombe, titled The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth, 1914)
