Literature of the Day: Here's a dark and poignant look at Halloween.

“The Ballad of Halloween” (1900)
by Theodosia Garrison

All night the wild wind on the heath
Whistled its song of vague alarms;
All night in some mad dance of death
The poplars tossed their naked arms.

Mignon Isá hath left her bed
And bared her shoulders to the blast;
The long procession of the dead
Stared at her as it passed.

"Oh, there, methinks, my mother smiled,
And there my father walks forlorn,
And there the little nameless child
That was the parish scorn.

"And there my olden comrades move,
And there my sister smiles apart,
But nowhere is the fair, false love

That bent and broke my heart.

"Oh, false in life, oh, false in death,
Wherever thy mad spirit be,
Could it not come this night," she saith,
"And keep tryst with me?"

Mignon Isá has turned alone,
Bitter the pain and long the years;
The moonlight on the old gravestone
Was warmer than her tears.

All night the wild wind on the heath
Whistled its song of vague alarms;
All night in some mad dance of death
The poplars tossed their naked arms.

Those extreme pumpkins are *awesome*!

I'm so glad you like them! The big-pumpkin-eating-little-pumpkin one is my favorite, I think. Such creativity!

I've been enjoying your Halloween posts. Love the poetry especially. It reminds me of an Indian summer poem my hometown paper used to publish yearly. All I can remember of it was that it compared the wisps of smoke from bonfires to dancing Native Americans. I loved it but can't think of the name or author. Does that ring any bells with you? Anyway, thanks for the fun posts. I look forward to more.

I'm so glad you're enjoying the posts! Thanks so much for the lovely feedback. I'm not sure about the Indian summer poem, but it sounds beautiful. I'll nose around and see if I can't discover it somewhere. I'd like to read it!

I may have shown this to you last year, but is worth repeating. I give you the Dalek shaped Jack-o-Lantern. It even moves and shrieks, "EXTERMINATE!!!!!" Personally I'd go for something more R&B and have it shriek, "KEEL DOCTOR!!!!!"
Oct. 11th, 2007 12:38 pm (UTC)
Oh, I love the Dalek Jack-o-Lantern! That is brilliant. ("Keel Doctor" - LOL!) This is absolute art. I love how creative people can come up with such fun and wonderful things. :)
