October 31 No ghosts for Halloween but a poem-Hist Whist! October 31, 2011

After a lovely visit to Aberglasney yesterday I report that there were no ghosts, spooks or ghouls around.  Apparently in the past there have been  mysterious sightings of eerie spectres …but not yesterday…all was wonderful, colourful and autumnal.

No ghosts but my favourite Halloween Poem:
 
Hist Whist         e.e.cummings 
 

hist whist
little ghostthings
tip-toe
twinkle-toe

little twitchy
witches and tingling
goblins
hob-a-nob hob-a-nob

little hoppy happy
toad in tweeds
tweeds
little itchy mousies

with scuttling
eyes rustle and run and
hidehidehide
whisk

whisk look out for the old woman
with the wart on her nose
what she’ll do to yer
nobody knows

for she knows the devil ooch
the devil ouch
the devil
ach the great

green
dancing
devil
devil

devil
devil

wheeEEE
