Mr. Scarecrow

Rain on the scarecrow
Look in the field and see the meadow

there stands in the middle a peculiar looking fellow

There at his post stands as the watchman

is Mr.scare crow who is made of wool and stuffed with cotton

His face is made from that of a pumpkin

whose eyes are made of two black buttons

with clothing that seems tethered and ragged

is Mr. Scare crow kept warm by his old, red jacket.


He stands prostrate in the wind and the rain

to guard the field that is planted with grain

his frame is made from the wood

that comes from the land of which he stood

all day long, he stands there still

to frighten the critters who trespass his field


Look in the field out into the meadow

and see that peculiar looking fellow

from the weather and beginning of fall

Mr. scarecrow is there to witness it all

including the trees and the leaves changing colors

He is there to witness all of autumn’s great wonders

every year brings a new season

which reminds Mr. scare crow he was put there for a reason.
