Ode to a pumpkin


Oh spherical friend,
with your curley-que mop,
Pleasant and chubby,
from bottom to top.

You harbinge the fall,
and the holiday hearth.
A time for rejoicing,
warm wishes, and mirth.

But your time with us passes,
not long once begun.
You’re skin softens gently,
you’re colors undone.

Until seasons cycle,
and return we to rest,
We await your return,
and all that is best.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our 2 Guys friends and your families.
