POEM of the DAY

Spooky! Scary! A week of Halloween themed poems:

 

THEME IN YELLOW


I spot the hills

With yellow balls in autumn.

I light the prairie cornfields

Orange and tawny gold clusters

And I am called pumpkins.

On the last of October

When dusk is fallen

Children join hands

And circle round me

Singing ghost songs

And love to the harvest moon;

I am a jack-o'-lantern

With terrible teeth

And the children know

I am fooling.

 

-Carl Sandburg (1878-1967)
