Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 659 (The Pumpkin Patch)

The idea came to hatch-

That we had to visit the pumpkin patch.


It was just a small drive-

And, then all of a sudden the scenery

came alive.


The vines were so green-

Amongst the orange pumpkins, that

were seen.


Big ones and small ones, and some

in between-

Some were huge, and of course, some

were lean.


To choose, was a hard thing to do-

As we continued to walk, as we continued



And, then all of a sudden we saw the perfect


We snapped it off the vine, we were finally



Sad to leave, though, for it had been so much fun-

Back through the field, to pay, and it would all be



We smiled as we drove away-

With the perfect pumpkin, for Halloween Day.


The idea came to hatch-

That we had to visit the pumpkin patch.


Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose #662 (The Candy Bowl Was Overflowing)

The candy bowl was overflowing-

As a matter of fact, it was glowing.


And then the doorbell rang, and it

began to get low-

For there were so many trick or treaters

on the go.


A handful here and a handful there-

Little hands, with bags were everywhere.


Dressed in costume from pumpkins to

the princess-

All the children in the neighborhood were

dressed in their Halloween best.


Before long the candy bowl was empty-

Not a piece left was there to be.


Had to hurry and fill it up once again-

For the doorbell was still ringing more now

than then.


The candy bowl was overflowing-

As a matter of fact it was glowing.


Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (05) Working To Keep That Candy Bowl Full


The candy bowl was full when I heard the first knock-

It was still early, as I looked at the clock.


It was Halloween night and as the children came-

The contents of the candy bowl were never again the same.


I filled it up over and over again to keep it topped-

And, had to keep it up earnestly as the traffic never stopped.


They came by the droves and were all so cute-

The idea to run out of candy could never be in dispute.


The candy bowl was full when I heard the first knock-

It was still early, as I looked at the clock.
