PUMPKINS
[ Also see Harvest Thanksgiving Day Vegetables ]

I don't know how to tell it--but ef such a thing could be
  As the angels wantin' boardin', and they'd call around on me--
    I'd want to 'ccommodate 'em--all the whole-in-durin' flock--
      When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock.
      - James Whitcomb Riley,
        When the Frost is on the Punkin

And the Creole of Cuba laughs out to behold,
  Through orange leaves shining the broad spheres of gold.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, The Pumpkin

O,--fruit loved of boyhood!--the old days recalling,
  When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
    When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
      Glaring out through the dark with a candle within!
        When we laughed round the corn-heap, with hearts all in tune,
          Our chair a broad pumpkin,--our lantern the moon,
            Telling tales of the fairy who travelled like steam
              In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, The Pumpkin
