Halloween SMS / Text Messages============================================
How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon.
From the slow opening curtains of the clouds.
Walking in beauty to her midnight throne.
I wish you luck this Halloween!
May all your witches come true
Wild ghosts appear in your dreams.
And monsters trample your fears.
Where there is no imagination
there is no horror.
~Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.
Bring forth the raisins and the nuts-
Tonight All-Hallows’ Spectre struts
Along the moonlit way.
~John Kendrick Bangs
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
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….
Hold on, man.
We don’t go anywhere with
“scary,” “spooky,” “haunted,”
or “forbidden” in the title.
‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
Nothing on Earth
so beautiful as
haul on Halloween night.
