Thanksgiving – Shel Silverstein Style

must remember

One day, I will write a wonderful book that make people smile just like Shel Silverstein’s “Where the Sidewalk Ends.” I have been reading the poems and enjoying the drawings all week. They have tickled my funny bone and open my creative heart to ideas for my next art project.

One of my favorite poems from Silverstein that fits this Thanksgiving occasion is titled ” I Must Remember”


I must remember . . .
Turkey on Thanksgiving,
Pudding on Christmas,
Eggs on Easter,
Chicken on Sunday,
Fish on Friday,
Leftovers, Monday,
But ah, me—I’m such a dunce.
I went and ate them all at once.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Enjoy your family, your friends and be thankful today for all the great things that are in your life.
