Flight of the Pumpkins!

Flight of the Pumpkins

By, Donna M. Monnig

Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate I thought it appropriate to post one of my favorite Halloween poems. This one was penned by my co-author of Echoes of Time: A Collection of Rhyme, who is also my mother, Mildred L. Monnig. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Flight of the Pumpkins!

I went out to my pumpkin patch,

Thinking I would pick a batch. 

But when I got there, none could be found,

And that’s when I heard this eerie sound.

They threw themselves up in the air,

And looked at me with a real mean glare. 

They said “You’re not going to carve us today,

Because we’re going to run away.

We’re going to the witches cave,

To try and make them girls behave.

So they won’t be such a fright,

And scare the kids on Halloween night.” 

By, Mildred L. Monnig

Have a happy and blessed Halloween!
