Pumpkins, pumpkins in the patch

Our backyard garden without a latch

All the colors of fall so true

Growing each day

What else can they do?

Soon to become pie and pumpkin bread

Jack-o’-lantern faces, scary with dread

Raking of leaves

We used to do

Bonfires in the streets

With marshmallows too!

Autumn, oh, autumn

I love the most

Warmth of the day

And cider evenings to toast

Thank you, yes, thank you

For this season of fall

Three cheers for your colors

Let’s high five them all!

Jenny Schnabel
