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.
