An ode to a fall dessert

Pumpkin Pie – The Montreal Daily Herald Oct. 5, 1892

When melancholy days comes round and leaves
get brown and red,

When corn is shocked, and when you add a
blanket to your bed.

When apples, pared and quartered, are set in
the sun to dry,

This is the time you smack your lips and think
of pumpkin pie.

This pumpkin pie’s a tempting dish to almost
any fellow,

So sweet and tender, luscious (yum !) and, then,
withal, so yellow.

You stir up eggs and milk and spice and sugar:
O, my eye.

And then you add the pumpkin, and that makes
the pumpkin pie.
