Way down deep near the wooded dale
Lies a pumpkin patch whose story I’ll tell
Misshapen gourds lie quietly in wait
For children to pass through the garden gate
Playfully they all run and romp
And along the paths they tread and tromp
Inspecting each squash with innocent eyes
Carefully selecting their orange orbed prize
“Oh, pretty please!” they cry out to mother,
“This is the one we want! We want no other!”
Carefully they carry their chosen one
Down the path ablaze by the midday’s sun
For Halloween would not be complete
Without a jack-o-lantern for trick or treat!
One hundred words exactly!
Leave it to Jenny to mix things up! This week's prompt for Saturday Centus (a story or poem in 100 words or less) was a photo rather than words! For other entries for this weekly meme, please visit Ms. Jenny's blog. The stories others come up with are always a delight to read. You won't be sorry.
