Oh yes,
Laurie was looking forward to fall.
She had been growing her pumpkins,
and one was particularly grand.
And sure enough,
it won first prize.

 
She tried not to show how very, very pleased she was.....
acting all demure.
It just would not have been right to act too excited,
since everyone was trying so hard to win too.

 
She pinned the ribbon on to her skirt.....
and decided to hand out some of her prize-
winning pumpkin seeds.
She hoped that would make everyone happy.
 
{{{Oops...I got the spelling wrong!
She will arrive with a corrected ribbon,
spelling it the RIGHT way.
I must have been daydreaming.....}}}
