A poem for this evening

Poet Laura Drake wonders how many trick-or-treaters will visit this evening

Editor:

 

Hallowe’en

 

 

Little ones scamper about

Going from door to door

Trick or treat, smell my feet

I think I’ve heard this before.

 

 

Pumpkins grin, candles glore

Thumps and groans from next door

Ghosts and goblins are leading the pack

As I stand on my front porch.

 

 

 

How many kids will come this year?

It’s one we always ask —

I don’t care how many there are

As long as the “loot” will last.

 

Black cats, witches hats,

They all look alike to me

Upturned faces at the door

Open bags — wanting more.

 

By the end of the evening

I’m done and spent.

A lot of fun watching the events

Time for bed — turn out the lights

All shelled out on this Hallowe’en night.

 

Laura Drake,

Langley
