"Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold." ~Judith Olney
"Just take a golden pumpkin
Of quite the largest size, ...
"Cut all 'round the stem, just so, ...
"Scrape out the inside below,
And cut two holes for eyes.
And now fix a nose beneath,...
"And such a great big mouth with teeth,
And you've a jack-o'-lantern!"
"Then fix a tallow candle,
Just big enough to light,
And when it flickers, see him blink,
And when it flares up, see him wink...
"And smile so broad and bright.
This is the jolliest sort of a fellow, ...
"With cheery face so round and yellow,
This funny jack-o'-lantern."
