Season’s Sight

Season’s Sight

(A Sonnet)


Pumpkin Scarecrow

The season’s sights are in the air,
With spirits roaming everywhere.
As summer wanes and crops are in,
The Pumpkin Wraith rules here again.

So friendly in the daylight hours.
The night reveals his evil powers.
His wooden hand provides no fright,
Until it grabs you in the night.

Don’t be fooled by friendly welcomes.
They may yield some nasty outcomes.
Jagged smiles hide sharper teeth.
Beware the foul fiend underneath!

He’s out there freely to be seen,
But evil stalks on Halloween.



Author Notes
This is a pumpkin scarecrow located near the front entrance to the Minnesota Arboretum located in Chanhassen, Minnesota. There were several exhibits of scarecrows with a pumpkin motiff on display there. I thought I’d use one for this Halloween poem.

This poem is a Sonnet with an aabb ccdd eeff gg rhyme scheme in tetrameter.
