September is waiting nearby in the wings..
Listen so close you'll hear locusts sing.
The leaves in all the nice green trees..
Are changing their colors with every breeze.
Some birdies have left their sweet summer nests..
They'll leave so soon, for they know best.
Our summer was short.. now put to bed..
We needed more sun for tomatoes red.
We ate our melon and corn so sweet..
Our cukes grew plump with vines so neat.
Green beans, peppers, and carrots grew..
Our gourds filled vines.. to name a few.
But something was wrong in the garden I say..
One lonely pumpkin I found today.
We watered and fed and took care of them..
Thinking we'd need to share with a friend.
But alas and alack we haven't a ton..
So my pal little Audra was the lucky one.
She took home her prize this afternoon..
I told her next year will be here so soon.
We'll try it again..growing pumpkins that is..
I'll read up on pumpkins and then be a whiz.
Next year will be here in the wink of an eye..
Our pumpkins will grow and then multiply.
We'll need baskets and wagons to haul them away..
Next year we will have more bright sunny days.Balisha
