"Ode to Sa'wein"


Come and Read My
Simple Thoughts on Hallowe'en ....



By a whimper, with a whisper,

and a rumor - you will know,

something odd has caught your soul,

and no control, abroad you go !

Cautious walking through the streets,

here you note a sight or two,

ghostie goblins, bats and bobbins

little ones proclaiming "BOO!"

Demanding that you offer tribute

in the way of sug'ry sweets,

they will tell you at the doorstep

"Tricks ahead if you've no treats !"

Memories come flooding back

of times when life was free and young,

nights that you yourself went treating,

n'er a trick would pass your tongue.

Now I see the guardians

hold the hands of daughter, son -

fearful that a real-life evil

grabs a child and tries to run.

Never should such innocents

be schooled in man's deceit,

time enough when we grow old

these monsters to defeat.

Now truly, here's a special time

for silliness to fully live -

so when a ghostie rings your bell,

be quite prepared to give give give !
