This is Halloween

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 rounds 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!

~ Dorothy Brown Thompson

Wishing you all a spooktacular Halloween!! :)
