Day 831: Dusk in Autumn


Lovely Halloween atmosphere in this poem. Although full moons always feature in almost every depiction of Halloween, the description here of the new moon as a 'scimitar' is more apt (and spooky), as we won't have a full moon fall on this Halloween.  


Dusk in Autumn - Sara Teasdale

The moon is like a scimitar,
A little silver scimitar,
A-drifting down the sky.
And near beside it is a star,
A timid twinkling golden star,
That watches like an eye.

And thro' the nursery window-pane
The witches have a fire again,
Just like the ones we make, —
And now I know they're having tea,
I wish they'd give a cup to me,
With witches' currant cake.
