This is Halloween

Jack O'Lanterns 2016

Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witch's 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 stars and laughter --
This is Halloween!

Thanks! :) Everyone designed their own, except Mike (we did him singing). Mine is the little house. I think it's becoming a tradition.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
