Samuin – Nos Calan Gaeaf
Now Samhain is quite near getting thin sieve
Between our own world and the otherworld
To let the spirits cross border to be believed
Perhaps witches, ghouls among us unfurled
By wearing costumes those spirits to ward.
Welcome, come all to cheerful, colorful fest
Get some treats, there are chances enough
Satan or witch maybe watching to behest
Enjoy the procession and other hot stuff
Drinking, laughing, drifting but in earnest.
We, the mortals now return to our habitations
Spirits crossed the border, Ghoul’s hour past
Pollution lifted, the clear moon in its rotation
Happy Halloween to return to next year fast
What a night of make-believe,cheers & passion!!.
