"On the bank of the brook
where the water ran black, was found the hat of the unfortunate Ichabod,
and beside it, a shattered pumpkin."
"Hurrah for the pumpkin
pie!" Lydia Marie Child
"But a celestial
brightness-a more ethereal beauty shone on her face and encircled her form
as she walked homeward serenely with God's benediction upon her."
"Brom Bones always burst
into a hearty laugh at the mention of the pumpkin, which led us to suspect
that he knew more about the matter than he chose to tell."
"An' the gobble-uns'll
git ya ef ya don't watch out!"
James Whitcomb Riley
