Beggar's night

Costumed kids on beggar's night
Make their rounds - cry "trick or treat"
To a neighbor's joyous delight
Kids scamper on their little feet
Neighborhoods are reconnected
On this special autumn night
Kids are handed lots of candy
And everyone around feigns fright

    Jon This takes the older readers ( like me ) back to their childhood and the memories of collecting candy and having fun. Nice job Hugs Thanks for the nice comment on my Paranoid poem. Glad you enjoyed the ending lines.

    Though Halloween sounds like a fun time for all, I'm happy it's not caught on here. I'm scared of my own damn shadow (lol). Lovely poem, Jon. Licia :-)

    Don't be too hard on CL. He has mellowed out so much since I first noticed his comments.

    So jon. For us, Beggar Night was the night BEFORE halloween and hardly any of us ever dared to go out a day earlier. WAs it the same with you when you were a kid?

    I have such fond memories of my childhood. I lived in a great neighborhood. Though it was large everyone got along well. Nobody locked their houses. Everybody was like family. Such a different time back then. So, much has changed since then and not for the better. Yes, it was the same when I was a kid.
