This one is about Halloween. I wrote it back in 1991 when I was stationed in Germany and homesick for one for one of my favorite holidays.

Pitter Pat – Tit Tat

Ghost, Goblins, Gremlins, Spooks…
Once again it’s that time of year
For that all familiar eerie cheer.

Witches, Spirits, Devils, and Wolves…
They fill the night
With lots of fright.

Caldrons boiling…
With outrageous ingredients
(eye of newt, ear of bat)
Smoke fills the air…

Capes, Cowls, Fangs, and Black Masks…
Intended to scare
Wanting a treat
Instead of a trick.

Creaking Coffins
Heavy Chains
Found in old mansions
Intended to hold the dead…
Too bad they’re
Too old
To work…

Candles that never stop burning…
Hearts that never stop yearning…
Pitter pat!
Tit Tat!
It’s All Hallows Eve
And that’s all it will ever be…

(c) S.G. Cardin - 1991

Halloween is my favorite holiday too. Since the Germans didn't celebrate it and I lived on the German economy while I was stationed in Germany I missed out on celebrating for 3 1/2 years until I returned to the United States.
