A poem....

                                                  Black and Gold

                                    Everything is black and gold,

                                    Black and gold tonight:

                                    Yellow pumpkins, yellow moon,

                                    Yellow candlelight;

                                                Jet-black cat with golden eyes,

                                                Shadows black as ink,

                                                Firelight blinking in the dark

                                                With a yellow blink.

                                  Black and gold, black and gold,

                                  Nothing in between----

                                  When the world turns black and gold,

                                  Then it's Halloween!

Enjoy this day!

  5. Cute poem. I had a couple of young boys come to my house tonight and I couldn't figure out what their costumes were. One was dressed in black and the other all dressed in orange and they told me they were Halloween - black and orange! :)
    Pretty clever, huh?
    thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)
