I like the way you describe pumpkin patches in this Marilyn. Calling them orange colored orbs is a really good and very well thought out way to describe them. They are orb shaped I guess, aren't they? Thanks for sharing this well written work. Well done and good luck in the contest.

    Hi Jeffrey. Thank you for your nice review. Yes, I would say (and did say) that the pumpkins are orbs. LOL! It was fun to write. Marilyn

This meets the contest requirements beautifully as you deliver a technically sound Retourne Poem on the Halloween theme. It took forever to get to this one - I really wish messages would sort old to new rather than always dumping the new ones on top - it's quite VEXING LOL! I really enjoyed this and feel it will be a top contender. Good luck in the judging and thank you very much for sharing it.

Great job on this contest entry, Marilyn. You've captured a true 'family' Halloween in this write, from the farmers' fields to the table to the Halloween Jack O'Lantern! Luv your innards/simmered rhyme, and the inclusion of both city kids and rural with "urban kids and country bumpkins".

Best wishes for the contest with this gem!

Hugs,
Connie

Yes, it is approaching that time of year again. I am so pleased I do not have to walk up and down the street with my kids to gather a bucket load of candy which they do not really like to eat.
I thought this a great Retourne poem - nicely composed and the rhyme scheme worked very well. The repeat line - Grown in farmer's field of pumpkins - a great visual for this piece. Well done and Happy Halloween. ~DD

A nice run-down of the preparations that go into the decorating and cooking of the treats as the kids count-down to the night of trick or treating. It is becoming more popular here now but nothing like your country. Nice Retourne Marilyn,
cheers,
valda

Brings back memories of long ago and conveys the joys of pumpkin carving on Halloween. The repeating line adds another dimension to this well crafted poem.

Whatever type of poem it is, it is done well and evokes the many wonderful results we can obtain from a pumpkin. The roasted seeds, the pumpkin pie or pudding, the flamed image for the front porch on Halloween. In the beginning, the beauty of the masses of orange in the fields is glorious. Nice presentatiion.

Very well written Retourne poem, Marilyn. It seems very complicated to me
I don't try to write one, but I loved to read it. In Holland we don't celebrate Halloween and pumpkins are only used to make pumpkin soup. So it was very nice to read this poem. Fia
