    “Pumpkin Seeds”

    One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
    I planted one and pulled the weeds.
    It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.
    A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
    The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
    I really am quite proud of that.
    But there is something I'll admit
    That has me worried just a bit.
    I ate the other seed, you see.
    Now will it grow inside of me?

    I'm so relieved since I have found
    That pumpkins only grow in the ground!
