Until The Sun Rises

No trick or treaters on the street
     they're all in bed now, getting sleep,
Candies piled high upon the floor
     collected from each neighbor's door,
Smoke rises from the pumpkin's grin
     the day's magic still burns within,
Restless spirits are set free to roam
     and find their way back to home,
An earthly reunion until the sun rises
     with those who've met their demises,
It's time for October's farewell scene
     on the final night of Halloween,
The harvest moon is setting low
     opposite the rising sun's gentle glow,
Wandering souls leave us for another year
     and say goodbye and shed a tear,
Because, they surely miss us, too
     their tears become the morning dew,
To stain the leaves a shining gold
     and welcome in wet November's cold.

    Your poem brought back so many memories to me of times gone by while my kids were growing up. They just loved Trick or Treating! Enjoyed this very much, Kelly :)

    Nice rhymes in this poem. I admire the way you used them to good effect. October, already - my birthday on the 14th. I had another poem in today's NY Times! Why not take a trip to NYC one day? You would love Poets House - 60,000 volumes of verse - from China, Israel, England, sports poems and plenty of good American poetry. Hope you like my chapbook! Happy Halloween! Matthew Anish
