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

through.

.

And, then all of a sudden we saw the perfect

one-

We snapped it off the vine, we were finally

through.

.

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

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

done.

.

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.

Otter Thanksgiving (Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose)

The otters all over the river met-
The Thanksgiving table was set.
.
Fork and spoon-
To eat real soon.
.
Each otter took seat-
To enjoy this yearly treat.
.
They were all thankful for sure-
For the wonder year they did endure.
.
Pumpkins were able-
To highlight the table.
.
Pies at every end-
What a dinnertime to spend.
.
The otters did this every year-
To much friendship to much cheer.
.
As they all loved each other-
As much as any sister or brother.
.
The otters all over the river met.
The Thanksgiving table was set.

Otter Trick Or Treat Upstream (Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose)

The otters went stream to stream-
To get candy and maybe some ice cream.
.
Every stream that they did see-
Had loads and loads of yum candy.
.
Smiling and looking ahead-
As they reached each stream trick or
treat was readily said.
.
Mama otter was with them as
they moved around-
She stayed further back and didn’t
make a sound.
.
For she ibkt wanted to watch them get
their trick or treating done-
She didn’t want to interfere in any
of their fun.
,
She had made them a trick or treat bag-
Out of one of her old dust rags.
.
Unique for sure and she knew it would
come in handy-
As they filled it up with Halloween candy.
.
The otters went stream to stream-
To get candy and maybe some ice cream.
