Thirteen Pumpkins

Thirteen orange pumpkins,          
Strewn about the lawn,          
Each with little candles          
Burning through 'til dawn.           4

Jack-o-lantern smiles,          
Gleaming through the night,          
Are guiding little goblins          
Through spooky, kooky sights.           8

Thirteen little pumpkins          
Sitting on the grass          
Just beyond the hay bales          
Leading up the pass.           12

The Autumn sights are splendid;          
The atmosphere is crisp.          
And every sunny gourd          
In winter will be missed.           16

Thirteen's quite a number,          
Its lore is quite bizarre.          
But it really does no damage;          
The tales are just a scar.           20

Thirteen lovely pumpkins          
Are lucky as can be.          
All Hallows Eve and folklore          
Cannot harm a flea.           24

Enjoy every goblin          
And every number, too.          
The Autumn air will leave us          
when winter strikes anew.           28
