I walked to the mailbox and found inside a letter. It was from my dear friend, Pat, who sent us a Halloween greeting. I love her poems and wanted to share it with you!
It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
and we shall see what can’t be seen
on any other night.
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls
Grinning goblins fighting duels
Werewolves rising from their tombs
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns
We haunt the streets
and knock on doors
for trick or treats.
Tonight we are
the King and Queen
for oh tonight
Tonight we will light a fire in the wood stove and add a few chairs for wandering souls. Make a warm meal and pour a pumpkin beer. We will fill a bowl with chocolates for the neighborhood ghouls. And enjoy Halloween in our new home.
Wishing you all a fun filled Halloween, a sweet Samhain, and a happy New Year.
