A Pagan’s “Halloween” Poem
by Cather Steincamp

‘Twas the evening of Samhain, and all through the place
were pagans preparing the ritual space.

The candles were set in the corners with care,
in hopes that the Watchtowers soon would be there.

We all had our robes on (as is habitual)
and had just settled down and were starting our ritual.

When out on the porch there arose such a chorus
that we went to the door and waiting there for us..

Were children in costumes of various kinds
with visions of chocolate bright in their minds.

In all of our workings, we’d almost forgot,
but we had purchased candy (we’d purchased a LOT!)

And so, as they flocked from all over the street,
they all got some chocolate or something else sweet.
