A Blessing on the Dressing

Print Share
    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.”
