“A pumpkin lives but once a year when someone sets its soul afire and on that night it stirs up fear until its flame is snuffed.”― Richelle E. Goodrich
Theme in Yellow
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.
Carl Sandburg, 1878 - 1967
