When the Frost is on the Punkin
  by James Whitcomb Riley


WHEN the frost is on the punkin
  and the fodder's in the shock,
And you hear the kyouck and gobble
  of the struttin' turkey-cock,
And the clackin' of the guineys,
  and the cluckin' of the hens,
And the rooster's hallylooyer
  as he tiptoes on the fence;
O, it's then the time a feller is a-feelin'
  at his best, 
With the risin' sun to greet him
  from a night of peaceful rest,
As he leaves the house, bareheaded,
  and goes out to feed the stock,
When the frost is on the punkin
  and the fodder's in the shock.
