Piper’s Pumpkin Party
By Sarah Meade
Word Count: 100
Piper’s having a party! A PUMPKIN party!
She picks up her pen to plan.
She’ll pour pumpkin punch,
serve pumpkin cookies and pumpkin pie,
and create pumpkin pyramids!
She’ll procure plenty of pumpkins for crafts, too.
Now all Piper needs is . . . pumpkins.
When she reaches the pumpkin patch– the sign says SOLD OUT.
She tries the farm down the road– NO PUMPKINS.
Finally at the supermarket– not a pumpkin to be purchased.
She peruses the produce section.
Then . . .
Piper spies a sale . . . Aha!
Piper’s having a party.
A PINEAPPLE party!
Happy birthday to Amy and Gennie!
