2012 HALLOWE’EN!

2012 PUMPKIN BY ERIC!

Have a safe & happy Hallowe’en, All!

Here is my response to the prompt!

Ghostly quote: Some one came knocking (from poem by Walter de la Mare)

On Hallowe’en night

After ghouls and goblins had given us a fright

Towards mid of the night I heard it

That sound on the door.

The newspaper came early?

Just tossed on the floor?

 

I rushed down the stairs

Unlocked the door

Not a sign of the raven

No bump in the night

Just a raccoon at the garbage

On Hallowe’en night!

  1. I had to laugh at the thought of the newspaper coming early. In all the years I spent in the newspaper business, I never heard of such a thing!
    I like the idea of your masked visitor. There are no raccoons where I live now, but at least there are deer who come in the winter to munch the frozen fruit on our ornamental crabapple tree.
    Enjoyed your poem very much.
