Lydia Maria Child

Over the river, and through the wood
Trot fast, my dapple-gray!
Spring over the ground like a hunting-hound,
For this is Thanksgiving Day

Lydia Maria Child   novelist, journalist, teacher
“Thanksgiving Song” written originally as a poem first appeared in Child’s Flowers for Children, Volume 2 in 1844.
