The season of death and of endings is here
And with it comes doubtfulness, worries and fear.
But trust in the Lady and trust in the Lord
As we all move toward Samhain with a single accord.
The pumpkins we carved, now all glowing and orange,
The grand, creepy sound of an old creaking door hinge.
Slithering shadows and sneaky black cats,
Whispering breezes and high-swooping bats;
Fairies and monsters with wings on their backs,
Ghosties and goblins are running in packs.
Kids all in costumes who run door to door –
Pagans, we know what this night’s really for!
Do divination and play party games,
Knowing that folks ‘round the world do the same.
Visiting ancestors’ gravesites and mounds,
Blessing the Earth and Her soon-sleeping grounds.
