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.

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!
Happy Halloween to you and yours. Loved the poem and photos.
Yikes, I've never seen pumpkins on fire like that.
