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 in 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 traveled like steam/ In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team. WHITTIER. [P. 17.]
