Welcome to my page of quotations about pumpkins — a beautiful and delicious part of autumn!  —ღ Terri

There are pumpkins aplenty, heaped at roadside stands, glowing in orange beauty on rural doorsteps, even lying like full moons in the fields. ~Hal Borland, "Pumpkin Pie," 1963

The sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves.
~Author unknown


The bards may sing of the great Corn King,
Who marshals in every valley,
His hosts we see, like the sands of the sea,
From hill-top and plain they rally.
But our muse will rhyme for the Pumpkin Vine,
As long as the pen is able,
For plainly 'tis seen the Pumpkin is Queen
Of the ranch and the dinner table...
~May C. Hanks (b. 1842), "Pumpkin is Queen"  [Mrs. Hanks wrote under the pseudonym Minnehaha. –tg]


At the close of a long hot summer, the appearance of the pumpkin heralds the welcome arrival of autumn. ~Kari Spencer, "Growing Pumpkins," 2013


Oh! greenly and fair in the lands of the sun
Vines of the gourd and the rich melon run.
Dark Spanish maidens and Creoles behold
Orange-leaves shining and broad spheres of gold.
Where crook-necks are coiling and yellow fruit shines,
The sun of September melts down on the vines.
~John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892), "The Pumpkin"


Pumpkin — seedy sunshine in an autumn bowl. ~Terri Guillemets, "Orange with excitement," 2010


There's a garden where the peppers
Were all growing on the vine,
The tomatoes and the pumpkins
And the string beans, very fine...

October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins... Merry October! ~Rainbow Rowell, Attachments, 2011


October is the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down —
October is red
And golden and brown...

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau, "Economy," Walden: Or, Life in the Woods, 1854


Oh! fruit loved of boyhood — the old days recalling,
When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling;
When wild, ugly faces we carved on its skin,
Glaring out through the dark, with a candle within;
When we laughed round the corn-heap, with hearts all in tune,
Our chair a broad pumpkin, our lantern the moon,
Telling tales of the fairy who travelled like steam,
In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team!
~John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892), "The Pumpkin"


O, a thing sublime is the Pumpkin vine!
When it bringeth its bloom in the summer,
It proudly lifts up its broad lily cup,
A chalice of regal splendor.
’Tis seen in its prime in the harvest time,
On the south hill-side in autumn,
A sphere of bright gold, its riches untold,
For the queen of the ranch is the Pumpkin.
~May C. Hanks (b. 1842), "Pumpkin is Queen"
