Theme In Yellow

Theme In Yellow By Carl Sandburg! Carl Sandburg was an American poet who lived from 1878-1967. This poem captures the splendor and excitement of fall from the point of view of a pumpkin. Halloween can be a spooky holiday, however, this poem brings interest to the innocent exercise of looking for the right pumpkin with teens and then carving a humorous face on it for Halloween night.

Theme In Yellow,

I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o’-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know
I am fooling.
