Halloween

Halloween: when ghosts appear. Is that a spirit hanging near? Are those dragging chains I hear? And my childhood's greatest fear: a skeleton's skull, but from the rear I know it will turn and have a sneer. A witch flies in without her gear; her ugly, green face so austere. Her pot's aboil with fresh mouse ear. Her broom is ready for her to steer. I'd like to stay, but isn't it clear: I'd rather be anyplace but here!

The best part of Halloween is experiencing hair rising on the back of one's neck . . . . Enjoyed!

Well done, Ann. I agree --anyplace but the one occupied by the witches.
