A Halloween birthday Tanka

Oh Halloween babe born under October's moon weave with forlornment your bewitching adornment of a harvest leaf festoon. Faces in pumpkins awake memories of when the children were young; and "Trick-or-Treat!" rung the holiday season in. Scorpio woman wipe away your wistful tear and tend to the craft of your birthday draught to toast your forty-first year.

I do not care when is your birthday, for what I celebrate is youth, and you should rage, and rage, and rage, lest some birthday take it away ... poets write because we are afraid of vanity.
