You may answer the riddles by filling in the right word.
I am a bird but never flew
I love to gobble but would not eat you.
I once used my bow hunting buffalo
and slept in a tee pee with Geronimo !
I am a vegetable with yellow bits
kernels on the cob but green stalks outside.
The pilgrims landed here and called
a stone in my name and a mouth my own.
I am played with kicks and
passes, hits and downs.
Quarterbacks and Tacklers know my name.
I am a game won with touchdowns!
I am a horn of plenty
but have another name
filled with food like fruits and vegetables,
nuts and breads and grains.
I am very solemn and I dress in black,
wearing buckled shoes and bonnets
or wide brimmed buckled hats.
I came to America struggling to be free
to practice religion as I felt it should be.
I am a day of the week you see
between Wednesday and Friday and begin with T.
I was the boat the Pilgrims sailed
A month in my name and the rest,
well a rose is one.
I was never human, just a straw man
dressed in humans clothes to frighten some.
Like the black birds circling over head
waiting to peck at my gardens and be fed .
I come one thankful day a year,
on the fourth Thursday in November
is this day of prayer.
Now, the riddling finished.
It has all been done.
Happy Thanksgiving Day
To Every One!
