The poet depicts the scene in vivid detail, describing the fruits of a healthy harvest and the warmth of a kitchen sweet from baking. By the end of the poem, the speaker himself is overwhelmed by the splendor of the scene:.

In " The Thanksgivings ," a traditional Iroquois prayer translated by nineteenth-century political advocate Harriet Maxwell Converse, the tone of reverence, gratitude, and celebration now attributed to the holiday is apparent in its anaphoric lines of praise:. We thank Him for all the fruits that grow on the trees and vines.
