Five Little Pumpkins

This is the first poem I ever learned (after the Guardian Angel prayer) and the first I have taught all my children. It's a fun, easy finger play for the tiniest child. (This little pumpkin sitting on a gate
decided not to run away when the wind went "wooooo!"
Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;

The first one said, "My, it's getting late."

The second one said, "I hear a noise."

The third one said, "It's just some boys."

The fourth one said, "Let's have some fun!"

The fifth one said, "We'd better run!"

Then Woooooooo went the wind....

And OUT went the lights.

And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
