Nice poem and nice pumpkin, but the advice in the last line is not good advice.

Pumpkins, and other members of the squash family (marrows, courgettes, cucumbers, squashes etc.) can, if cross-fertilised with wild members of the family or with ornamental gourds, produce seeds which will grow into poisonous plants, giving rise to “toxic squash syndrome” if eaten.

Get seeds from a reliable source, rather than saving your own.
