It's Hallowe'en!

I know we coin Christmas as the most wonderful time of the year,
but for me, Halloween is a very, very close second.
Tonight under the full moon, I admired Stillestead and remembered
a Halloween poem we had to memorize in 5th grade:

"Tonight is the night
When dead leaves fly
Like witches on switches
Across the sky,
When elf and sprite
Flit through the night
On a moony sheen.
Tonight is the night
When leaves make a sound
Like a gnome in his home
Under the ground,
When spooks and trolls
Creep out of holes
Mossy and green.
Tonight is the night
When pumpkins stare
Through sheaves and leaves
When ghoul and ghost
And goblin host
Dance round their queen.
It's Hallowe'en!"
