Once upon a pumpkin vine,
There grew a flower, fair and fine.
One day, a sprite danced by and brushed
Her petals with a golden dust.
And magically, that flower fine
Became a pumpkin on that vine.
Now perhaps that fairy was a bee
And pollen dust fell from its knee.
Then pollination, not some spell’s power,
grew a fruit from that fair flower.
Still … her beauty had no match
She was the princess of the pumpkin patch!
