Wooden witch –
I wooden want her
As neighbor.

The witch called,
“Here, kitty kitty.”
Wooden come.

All the hills and vales along
Earth is bursting into song,
And the singers are the chaps
Who are going to die perhaps.
O sing, marching men,
Till the valleys ring again.
Give your gladness to earth’s keeping,
So be glad, when you are sleeping.
Cast away regret and rue,
Think what you are marching to.
Little live, great pass.
Jesus Christ and Barabbas
Were found the same day.
This died, that went his way.
So sing with joyful breath,
For why, you are going to death.
Teeming earth will surely store
All the gladness that you pour.

Earth that never doubts nor fears,
Earth that knows of death, not tears,
Earth that bore with joyful ease
Hemlock for Socrates,
Earth that blossomed and was glad
‘Neath the cross that Christ had,
Shall rejoice and blossom too
When the bullet reaches you.
Wherefore, men marching
On the road to death, sing!
Pour your gladness on earth’s head,
So be merry, so be dead.

From the hills and valleys earth
Shouts back the sound of mirth,
Tramp of feet and lilt of song
Ringing all the road along.
All the music of their going,
Ringing swinging glad song-throwing,
Earth will echo still, when foot
Lies numb and voice mute.
On, marching men, on
To the gates of death with song.
Sow your gladness for earth’s reaping,
So you may be glad, though sleeping.
Strew your gladness on earth’s bed,
So be merry, so be dead.

Witch Moon Maroon


It’s the night
A skeleton crew
Works the streets.

Patrick Henry

Said Patrick:
Liberty or death,
Treat or trick.

Devil At The Door 

How he works:
Treat, treat, treat, treat, treat,
Treat, treat, TRICK!

— 

Not one day.
He does it all days –
That’s scary!

       The Trick Is The Treat

All Hallows’, the worry is witches;
Their curse might bring scurvy or itches.
   But those trick or treaters
   In turn, are big eaters.
It’s sugar that curses, swells britches.

Earthquake Zone

Notice the
San Andreas fault
In tire tracks.

The Whole Maple Race

Each one comes
In his own color.
All – beauty!

Snow on tree

Image via Wikipedia

 
One Man’s Trick, Another Man’s Treat

For Halloween, the great Northeast
   Received a winter snow,
While fall had yet to have full run
   And leaves were left to show

Their splendid colors on their trees.
   But Nature didn’t wait;
She played the trick and coldly sat
   And watched them deal with fate.

Dry Texas speaks to snow-stunned states,
   Your trick won’t stand the heat;
So, would you pipe the melt to us?  –
   We’ll gladly take the treat.
