Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [G] Halloween Night

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

.

They went to see Mrs. Smith, who made the

popcorn ball-

She made plenty, she made enough for all.

.

Then off to Mr. Chester’s, who gave candy

corn-

And in addition, he blew real loud his

homemade boat horn.

.

Mrs. Garcia always had chocolate to boot-

When we left her house, we had scored our loot.

.

Mrs. Johnson had a variety of candy-

To trick or treat, at her house was real handy.

.

The Halloween bags were getting full and a bit heavy-

Thank goodness, Mama was following along in that

old time Chevy.

.

To unload a bit, in the car-

Then once again, to travel far.

.

From this block, to that block, the kids went

door to door-

It was Halloween night, and every house turned

into a candy store.

.

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

A Child’s Time-In Simple Rhyme (10)

It’s easy to take a comfortable seat-

And sit next to Grandmother as she tells her

tales of when she used to trick or treat.

The Fall Season (2007)

I can feel the full season of Fall in progress now. The pumpkins have come out, and the costumes are being purchased for the grand finale.

As a child, we used to make up our own costumes from materials around the house, and then we’d head out the door, just as soon, as it started to get dark. As long as we were back at a set time, all was well.

We’d go from house to house, and then eventually we’d cover one street after another. Every once in a while, we’d have to hit the same house twice, for they had the real goodies. It wouldn’t take us too long before our bags began to get heavy.

Would you believe that we actually ate whatever was in our bags? We ate it along the route. We ate it after we got home, and then we finished it off, during the few weeks that followed.

There was no stopping us, back in the old days, and no reason to think otherwise. Whether it be a caramel apple, or a homemade popcorn ball, we ate it all.

Nowadays, we have to be more careful with the way that the world has become. Yes, I know that there are a lot of good people in the world. It’s just too bad that we’ve had to change our behavior, because of the the few that aren’t so good.

Having a ten year old daughter, and three grandchildren, I get to enjoy Halloween, I mean aka the Fall season, in a different way. As a child, I used to greatly anticipate that special night. Now I see the same feeling reflected in my little one’s eyes.

It’s their turn now. We head off to the costume shop, and they pick one of their choosing, and then we travel the fall festival circuit. It’s a little different than from the way I used to do it, as a child, but it works.

“Time passes, but from what I summize-
Some things stand still, such as the
enlightenment in childrens’ eyes.”
