Though blazing orange like fire,

We shield our scary sight.

We hide are funny faces,

Until it’s Halloween night.

A knife we see!  It comes close!

But frightened we are not.

We let you cut our hats off,

And take the seeds we’ve got!

We are not afraid

When we see you with that knife,

For when our hats are finally off,

We start a brand new life.

After you have carved us,

Our smiles and frowns, they show!

And when you see our faces,

Give us candles! We will glow!

Funny, scary, sometimes sad,

Whatever we may be,

Put us out on Halloween,

So everyone can see!

  1. Great poem, Lily! I hadn’t thought about pumpkins “hiding” their faces until Halloween. 🙂

  2. Thanks! Next I’m going to try some of your autumn prompts that relate to Thanksgiving! As for the fairy tale prompts, I may try reading the fairy tales and jotting down the thoughts the stories give me along with the titles.
