The season of getting together is upon us. Christmas, Thanksgiving and lots of other meals together with friends and family. Many like a grace, a thanks, a recognition of the event and the meal and we aren’t all Religious. So, if you want a non religious grace for your gathering. I’m happy if you like this one.
Thanks to those, the hale and hearty
Our companions at this gathered party
Thanks to the cooks, the creators of feasts
Thanks to those, the hunters of beasts
Thanks to those who tend the vines
and thanks to those who make them wines
The makers of food and tenders of flocks
The brewers and bakers and growers of crops
The folk who take wild things and make them a meal
The food and the wine over friendships we seal
We thank the stout people who carry the beer
We thank our good hosts for having us here
We give thanks that we are lucky, as life could be worse
But not for too long though, here comes the first course.
