JULIA ZITELLA COCKE
American poet
(1840 - 1929)

One cycle more, with rich fruition crowned,
  Hastes to fulfilment of its perfect round,--
    Great year of wonder, and of vast emprise!--
      For all its gifts, ay, let Thanksgiving rise,
        The hero's prowess--bloodless victory won;
          The martyr's patience, sternest duty done,--
            Yet, loftier paeans still, for war's surcease,--
              For God's best gift,--the precious boon of peace!
                For garnered opulence of flock and field,
                  Joys ever new, revolving seasons yield,--
                    For those bright presences of radiant night,--
                      The garment-hem of Glory Infinite,--
                        Blithe speech of birds, and bloom of sunny bower,
                          Health, home, and love,--the best of earthly dower,--
                            Yet in thy gracious time of strife's release,
                              Thank God, ye people, for His gift of peace.
      - [Thanksgiving Day]
