This is Thanksgiving to Mr. Whittier
………………………..
When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
Glaring out through the dark with a candle within!
When we laughed round the corn-heap, with hearts all in tune,
Our chair a broad pumpkin,—our lantern the moon,
Telling tales of the fairy who travelled like steam,
In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team!
………………
(The Pumpkin by JOHN GREENLEAF WHITTIER)

What is it to you?
