Frost on the punkin?Posted Thursday, October 21, 2010, at 10:12 PM
Fall is the time of year when poems by James Whitcomb Riley pop into my mind and I've got one to put in my column space for this week and next. My third-grade teacher, Mrs. Gilbreath, used to read these to her class every year. Riley, by the way, was a Hoosier, and a newspaper man.
"When the Frost is on the Punkin"
By James Whitcomb Riley. 1853-1916
WHEN the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock,
They's something kindo' harty-like about the atmusfere
The husky, rusty russel of the tossels of the corn,
Then your apples all is gethered, and the ones a feller keeps,
