Listen as you read along…
Twas the night before the all hallows eve When I took my crooked broom and made to leave On morrow we wait to see all through the hood Creatures will screech—just as they should I, in my witch hat, all ready to fly Settled in with a goblin and let out a sigh Children would trick n treat: full of such glee I’d stare out the window to wait without guarantee They’ll clamor and sprint up a strangers front step, in snow boots, hats, and dragging costumes they’ll schlep. Mommy and daddy only a few steps behind checking the goods so seemingly kind The candy will dwindle as the little ones sleep It’s a rite of passage, this parent technique. We witches all know who the real thieves are as Snickers, Kisses, and Starbursts too all bid au revoir It’s the same every year with each ghost and wee fairy As the next days return to no gluten, sugar, and absolutely no dairy It’s the way of the land, that’s what they all say Zoomer kids are organic, protected and not led astray I’m all ready to fly, cackle, and send a quick fright but we’re not quite set so I’ll sit down and write As I raise my eyes to the sky in it’s wondrous dark sheen I'll simply wish you all a Happy Halloween. faye e. arcand
