Growing Pumpkins

Growing Pumpkins

A Chapter by Dave Brown

musically motivated


We took a new pumpkin seed

Carefully setting it in its new grounds

And celebrated its new birth there

By playing lovely musical sounds


The tiny seed loved music

Because we heard it gently singing along

As the wee seed kept on growing

It continually sang, song after song


Gentle music, it sang at first

Taking an occasional, mid-growth rest

And as it grew to small cottage size

Its music became the best


Soon crowds came from near and far

Including a frustrated husband named “Peter”

Wanting our huge musical plant, because he had

Special use for its each square centimeter


It was the large shell he wanted

Although, the music was awfully nice

Because after putting his harlot wife inside

He could sell the two for a much better price

I have heard that by talking lovingly to plants it can help them grow, so I guess playing them music would probably have even better results. We have grown pumpkins. Always fun to do, but we would not be able to produce any that would meet the needs of Peter. Next time I make pumpkin soup and scoop out all that lovely flesh, I will no doubt remember this poem Dave.
