October Moon

In the Dark of the Moon

In the dark of the moon,
Beware! Have a care!
Of the ring at the door
And nobody there.

Of the soap hieroglyphics
On a clean pane;
Of hushed, ghostly giggles;
Of steps down a lane.

Beware! Have a care!
Of the small shape in white
With a pumpkiny lantern,
Its features alight.

No use to be looking
Stern, staid and sober-
Better turn goblin
This night in October.

These big orange pumpkins remind me of a large harvest moon.
I hope you are all celebrating the beauty of the season.
