Over the river and through the wood,
To grandfather’s house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow.
(first verse)

Lydia Maria Child
The New-England Boy’s Song about Thanksgiving Day from Flowers for Children, 1845

This is the first verse of a poem that became a well known Thanksgiving song.  You can read the entire poem and see a video of a school group singing the song at the source in the above image or here.


For Super Quote Sunday, pick a quote you love, and then hunt for an image or a photograph that matches the quote. That is the challenge.  It’s not as easy as it sounds, at least not for me.   It will be fun to see what others come up with.

It’s easy to let us all see your contributions by following this blog to get my Super Sunday Quote post which I will put out on Saturday nights.  In the comments section simply leave a link to your Super Sunday Quote.   Or, if I didn’t post yet and you’re busy living your life and cannot wait around for me, you can just tag your post with Super Quote Sunday so we can all find one another.

If it’s not your photograph or your image, make sure you give it proper attribution in the caption.  Title the post “Super Quote Sunday – [name of person you’re quoting].”  In the body of your post simply write the quote and then add your image/photo.

    I love that song. I didn’t know the history behind it. And I love the image. I’m so ready for Thanksgiving!
