Or mother will use it

Too cook and bake some pies

And grins from ear to ear

Gold and brown

Blue ghosts of smoke

Float through the town

Great v’s of geese

Honk overhead

And maples turn

A fiery red

P2: Frost bites the lawn

The stars are slits

In a black cat’s eye

Before the spits

At last small witches

Goblins hags

And pirates armed

With paper bags

Their costumes hinged

On safety pins

Go haunt a night

Of pumpkin grins
