It's Looking Octoberish


Pumpkin

Pumpkin pumpkin 
big and round, 
I'm glad you grow 
upon the ground. 
I'm glad you don't 
grow in a tree 
for then you might 
fall down on me.

Pumpkins
Pumpkins by the barn.
Pumpkins by the house.
Pumpkins by the wagon.
Pumpkins by the mouse.

Pumpkins by the fence.
Pumpkins by the cat.
Pumpkins by the scarecrow.
Pumpkins by the hat.

Pumpkins by the table.
Pumpkins by the chair.
Pumpkins by the door.
Pumpkins everywhere!


Just in Time
What a funny seed I found,
I wondered what would grow?
So I planted it in the ground,
And now I know!

Little leaves were first to sprout,
Growing in a line,
Then golden blossoms opened out
Along the vine.

And then something grew and grew and grew!
The biggest ever seen!
And now I have a pumpkin--
Just in time for HALLOWEEN!
