A Blessing on the Dressing

    Grandma brought the turkey in,

    Sizzly, plump, and browned;

    Grandpa carved the tender bird

    And passed the plates around.

    When everyone was full at last,

    Grandma sighed and then,

    “Was everything all right?” she asked,

    With a smile for little Glenn.

    Glenn said, “No offense, Grandma,

    The turkey wasn’t great;

    But I’ll tell what was really good—

    I loved the bread it ate.”
