We can’t let this day pass without posting a Halloween poem at Blue Rose Girls!

So here is a mask poem written by one of America’s greatest writers, Carl Sandburg:


I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o’-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know
I am fooling.

Happy Halloween!!!
See you again on Poetry Friday.
