Blogtoberfest Day XV–World Poetry Day

Theme in Yellow
by Carl Sandburg

I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o'-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know I am fooling.

This week’s giveaway includes an American Jane pattern, a spool of Nature’s Rainbow thread, and 5 fat quarters of Lizzy Dish fabric from Andover (photo on yesterday’s post).  To qualify, comment on any of my Blogtoberfest posts (you can qualify more than once, and followers of my blog automatically get an extra entry).

Happy Halloween and an awesome October!

  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and poem. I love Fall! I am always eager to carve my pumpkins and bring them to life in my home even though my girls are long grown and have families of their own now. Happy Halloween!
