Background Six Pumpkin Lanterns

By Josie Whitehead

Six golden pumpkins

    Sat in their beds.

Along came the farmer

    Who cut off their heads.

 

Next came the farmer’s wife

    Who removed their insides

And then cut a smiling grin

    And eyes that opened wide.

 

In each  golden pumpkin now

    A candle flickers bright.

I'm sure you have rightly guessed -

    It’s Halloween tonight!
