Tricks and Treats

Tricks and Treats
By V. Rodney Harrison Jr. – 10-3-2010

Chimneys at work with warmth in their scent,
Brightly colored leaves freely dancing in the wind.
With burnt skies of orange becoming more dim,
The echoes of the day are now coming to an end.

The cry of a black cat that almost pains the ear,
A goblin dashing by with great speed.
Spirits roaming freely up and down the lanes,
Enough to make ones skin crawl and bleed.

This is the night for sneaky tricks of all sorts,
Of bobbing for juicy apples with glee.
With great disguises to confuse and surprise,
In hopes to venture on a tasty sweets spree.

The eerie sounds of old haunted dwellings,
Give way to children’s laughter and screams.
Of excited first timers surveying the streets,
Constructing their plans and thinking up schemes.

Tonight’s prize is one of great value to all,
Who are up for the challenge most supreme.
So may those precious Trick Or Treaters all prevail,
And have the most wonderful Happy Halloween!

I used to when i was younger - back in the 80s. Won a few and had a few put in newspapers etc - but mostly wrote for girlfriends (of course wife now) and friends... Probably hundreds out there i will never see again.
