It's late and we are sleepy,
the air is cold and still.
Our Jack O' Lantern grins at us
upon the window sill.
We're stuffed with cake and candy
and we've had a lot of fun,
But now it's time to go to bed
and dream of all we've done.
We'll dream of ghosts and goblins
and of witches that we've seen,
And we'll dream of trick-or-treating
on this Happy Halloween.

No more reason to shudder shake
shiver, tremble, quiver, quake.
No more reason for throat to thirst.
It's November FIRST.

An Old Cornish Litany
From ghoulies and ghosties
and long leggity beasties
and all THINGS
that go BUMP in the night,
Good Lord deliver us.
(Alright, so I lied. I posted tonight after all. Happy Halloween Everybody!)
