Odes To October
Oktoberfest and all the rest,
Right up through Halloween,
Now it’s Fall and time for all
To focus on cuisine.
In the words of a native New York bumpkin,
Now’s the time to praise the pumpkin,
For soup to pie to spicy seeds,
Or carved up for your Halloween needs.
Summer’s gone Fall has come.
It’s harvest time, hooray!
With pumpkins and apples and peppers (yum yum),
Cook ‘em up every which way.
