Bright pumpkin patches
along country roads,
lush, ripened fruit
a new season bodes.
Baked into warm pies
for Thanksgiving feeds,
what young goblins need
to do scary deeds.
Giant pumpkins—orange, leaves turning red,
white frosty nights, fun lies ahead.
Barbara Ruby submitted this poem for Poetry Corner 2014. It’s brought back again for the transition from Halloween to delicious Thanksgiving treat. Barbara is a Washington resident who has submitted many things to Northwest Prime Time.
