An Ode to Pumpkin

pumpkin love

Dear Pumpkin, I can’t get you out of my head
From spiced lattes and pies to freshly, baked bread

You make us all crazy with the promise of fall
Stuffed in pancakes or chili, I want them all

From candles to casseroles, I smell you everywhere
You tempt me with your bright orange flare

A muffin, a torte or divine cheesecake
Endless recipes I have yet to make

At patches you sit in rows for miles
We drink you or carve you in many different styles

You leave us spellbound for an entire glorious season
Then peppermint tries to replace you – for no good reason.
