Potomac Poem: Ghost Pumpkin

Potomac Poem: Ghost Pumpkin

There was a little pumpkin that lived in a patch,

It was round and big and I knew it was the one I wanted to snatch.

I grabbed it real fast because it was so unique,

I knew that it was a special treat.

You were not orange like all the others,

You were white like no other.

White pumpkin, white pumpkin,

Why are you white?

Did a ghost jump out and give you a fright?

It was Halloween night when I found you,

Did you turn white when a ghost said, “Boo!”

Pumpkin, pumpkin, I love you.
