Halloween Today!

 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.
~Ethel Romig Fuller from Kitchen Sonnets

Don't you just think that looks like a ferocious 
mouth on that grill of the old Ford?
Happy Halloween, dear friends!
Share a bit of silliness, laugh,
and delight in the day.

Don't forget the give-away on Friday.
Sign up for a chance to receive two Christmas tea books.
I would love for you to win them.

What a cute and fun post . . . I'll never look at an old Ford again without seeing that toothy mouth, LOL
Have a nice day.

Happy Halloween, Marilyn! I love the small white pumpkins, but there's just something about seeing an orange pumpkin around Halloween. Love the picture of the pumpkins all stacked up.
