Happy Halloween 55


Black cats and witches
grave yards and ghosts
vampire bats and goblins
all stand to make a toast

Give the beggars sweet cakes
so they will pray for your soul
many main traditions
began so very long ago

Don't be scared
but hold your breath
we have fun giving life
to a celebration of death
No matter how you celebrate,
or if you do at all,
Remember, to wrap your fun in safety
and hope you have  a ball.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

I would love to have grown up with such fun, instead of the solemn graveyards we have here.. though they do not blend very well either..

You've pretty much wrapped it all up in 55 words! Happy Haloween to you and all the farm critters.

And Happy Halloween to you!

Nice!
The safety poem reads (to me anyway) like a condom commercial. I approve! :)

Debbie said...

I keep on picturing a bunch of creatures standing in front of a toaster. ;-D

Hope your Halloween was wonderful.

Interesting to read of a little more than pumpkins and 'trick or treat'. Not really an Aussie tradition, though the kids do dress up and come begging for treats.

Truly wonderful words, for this most special of events!
