To Pumpkins at Pumpkin Time

Back into your garden-beds!
Here come the holidays!
And woe to the golden pumpkin-heads
Attracting too much praise.

Hide behind the hoe, the plow,
Cling fast to the vine!
Those who come to praise you now
Will soon sit down to dine.

Keep your lovely heads, my dears,
If you know what I mean…
Unless you want to be in pie,
Stay hidden or stay green!!

  1. I wonder what a pumpkin really wants. To be eaten in one satisfying meal, to be made into something sweet or savoury, or is their ultimate ambition to be carved into a lantern? Maybe they should pin labels on themselves, so that they can attract the right buyers.
