All Hallows' Eve


Listen . . . do you hear
Wailing in the darkling wood?
Only wind, you say?
Fool! Hurry inside,
Bolt the door, and wait for morn.
This one night is theirs....

What a great shot for Hallowe'en. Presumably, you don't too many 'trick or treaters' knocking at your door.

Victoria said...

Happy Halloween, Vicki!

Thérèse said...

No, Martin, we haven't had trick or treaters since my boys were small. Back then our group of mothers would drive the kids around to our different house and end up at one for a party. Since we live pretty far apart it took a long time. Nowadays, it seems that kids just go into town and visit the various merchants who have candy ready.

Halloween when I was a kid (back in the Fifties and in a relatively safe suburb)was WONDERFUL! We ranged up and down several blocks, visiting house after house and often receiving excellent homemade treats.


Therese -- that first shot was a lucky accident -- a combination of sun and shadow that I didn't see til it was on the computer.

Trick or treat! Only the brave or foolhardy would venture out once seeing that first photo.

Yikes! Good advice, Vicki!

Oh my, that first shot is super creepy!! If that's what the woods around your house look like, I would definitely be staying inside. Happy Halloween!
