Pumpkin, Pumpkin

Pumpkin, pumpkin, you look so cool
In your burnt orange
Resting in that patch of dying vines
Soon there'll be a little frost
To add to your luster

What will it be in your near future
Will your innards be served as tasty
Pumpkin pie?
Without the seeds of course
Discarded in the garden barren

Or will you decorate a porch with others
Or at the base of a lamppost
Resting against a corn shock in Fall brown
Overlooking traffic on a quiet street?

Perhaps best of all will you be a centerpiece
On table grand
With carved face to greet one and all
Who gather around with cider cold
Or warm
To share favorite ghost stories
Of Halloween.

Pumpkin, pumpkin, you look so cool
In your burnt orange

Pumpkin, Pumpkin(c)2011 Quentin Clingerman
