Pumpkin Poem

Pumpkin seedling sprouts in a tea caddy © Gretchen Bernet-Ward 2021


One day I found two pumpkin seeds.

I planted one and pulled the weeds.

It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.

A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.

The pumpkin was quite round and fat.

(I really am quite proud of that)

But there is something I’ll admit

That has me worried just a bit.

I ate the other seed, you see.

Now will it grow inside of me…?

I’m so relieved since I have found

That pumpkins only grow in the ground!
