Quotable Sunday - Halloween

Sunday, October 25, 2009

Hark! Hark to the wind! 'Tis the night, they say,
When all souls come back from the far away-
The dead, forgotten this many a day!
~Virna Sheard

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
~Author Unknown

Hobgoblins know the proper way to dance:
Arms akimbo, loopy legs askew,
Leaping into darkness with delight,
Lusting for the ecstasy of fright,
Open to the charm of horrors new....
~Nicholas Gordon, poemsforfree.com

Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve.... And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon. ~Kim Elizabeth

May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future�s veil and show
What fate now holds for you.
~Author Unknown

On Hallowe'en the thing you must do
Is pretend that nothing can frighten you
And if somethin' scares you and you want to run
Just let on like it's Hallowe'en fun.
~Author Unknown

Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story. ~Mason Cooley

Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night!
~Elizabeth Akers Allen

My fav part about Halloween is the laughter. Seeing all those little ones not quite sure what to do, and the ones that do enjoying the evening.
