Pumpkin Seeds

One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.
A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
(I really am quite proud of that.)
But there is something I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.

I ate the other seed, you see. Now
will it grow inside of me?
(I'm so relieved since I have found 
That pumpkins only grow in the ground!)
