They start as pumpkins on the farm

Picked by families for their charm

Grab the wagon, grab the cart

Everyone can’t wait to start

Pick the design, freehand or trace

Take your time, it’s not a race

Big kids, little kids it doesn’t matter

Markers, stickers and paint will splatter

A couple cuts here and there

Scoop the guts for crazy hair

Don’t forget to coat with vegetable spray

Your design will stay fresh for many a day

Some are happy, some are sad

some are silly, some are mad

Big ones, little ones, short and tall

Festive creations of the Fall

Light the porches in the night

Jack O’Lanterns bold and bright
