温暖的感恩节,带着一颗感恩的心,祝福身边爱你的人。


IN many parts of the world a day is set aside to give thanks. The date and customs may vary from country to country but the desire to take time to think of life's blessings (祝福) remains the same. In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. This year it is on November 25. It is a time for family, food and football. It also marks the unofficial (非官方的) start of the winter holiday season. Below is a famous Thanksgiving poem that we'd like to share with our readers.

Thanksgiving

Edgar Albert Guest, 1881-1959)

Gettin' together to smile an' rejoice,

An' eatin' an' laughin' with folks of your choice;

An' kissin' the girls an' declarin' that they

Are growin more beautiful day after day;

Chattin' an' braggin' (吹牛) a bit with the men,

Buildin' the old family circle again;

Livin' the wholesome an' old-fashioned cheer,

Just for awhile at the end of the year.

Greetings fly fast as we crowd through the door

And under the old roof we gather once more

Just as we did when the youngsters were small;

Mother's a little bit grayer, that's all.

Father's a little bit older, but still

Ready to romp (嬉戏) an' to laugh with a will.

Here we are back at the table again

Tellin' our stories as women an' men.

Bowed are our heads for a moment in prayer;

Oh, but we're grateful an' glad to be there.

Home from the east land an' home from the west,

Home with the folks that are dearest an' best.

Out of the sham (虚假) of the cities afar

We've come for a time to be just what we are.

Here we can talk of ourselves an' be frank,

Forgettin' position an' station an' rank.

Give me the end of the year an' its fun

When most of the plannin' an' toilin' (工作) is done;

Bring all the wanderers home to the nest,

Let me sit down with the ones I love best,

Hear the old voices still ringin' with song,

See the old faces unblemished (无疵的) by wrong,

See the old table with all of its chairs

An I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers.

(本诗中,动词后的in' 形式相当于ing, an' 相当于and)
