Happy Halloween!

It’s October 31 here, so for those who are celebrating: Have a wonderful Halloween and safe trick-or-treating!

Found a nice surprise at Google

This is Halloween

Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches’ gateposts
Giving stare for stare,
Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirrings round of fate-cakes
With a solemn spoon.

Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
Up and down the streets,
Jack-o’-lanterns grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter
This is Halloween

  1. Love the poem Antoinette. I wish I’d come across this one when I was putting together my Halloween tips and ideas article.
