A Jack-O- Lantern Speaks
Happy Halloween!
It's nice to be seen
outside of the garden.

Before you leave me alone
on this cold wooden porch
could you carve me a friend?

I would like a Jacqueline-O-Lantern
to keep me company
on these brisk fall nights
when the only lights
I see are those inside of me
and my beloved Jackie.

Please carve me a Jackie-O-Lantern
and I will be so happy
that I will wish all the Trick Or Treaters
a "Happy Halloween"
instead of scaring
them off of your porch
and out of your yard.
