Once upon a moonlit night
There came a ray of magic light

That shone upon an orphan home
Where two small pumpkins left alone

To thirst and starve to fret and cry
Would spoil at last and surely die

But struck at last by magic’s beam
There came a most fantastic scheme

When a dad and son with paring knife
Cut mouth and eyes to give them life

Their eyes were dark with lifeless stare
Their mouths with fangs beyond compare

Blind and sad the pair     and so
Old dad invented candle glow

No longer were they sad    forlorn
Jack o lantern fright was born

    What an awesome Halloween poem, Daver. I love the magical touch that gives these two pumpkins life. A fave for me. I couldn't help thinking about the many stray cats that gather round your home as I started reading this poem. You work your magic to give them a safe refuge. (Power's on and I'm home.) Sending love to you and Bev, Carolyn
