The Day of the Dead

Here’s a poem from my newest book,  Not Only/But Also:

 

The End of Daylight Savings Time

 

Random scatter in the paling sky

this All Soul’s evening dusk arrives at five.

Each fall the convent graveyard makes me cry.

Random scatter in the paling sky,

the calm before November’s migrants fly

by next week, early dark and cold will drive

random scatter from the paling sky.

But All Soul’s evening, dusk arrives at five.

 

another trick or treat art

 

 

and here’s one from Lizette Woodworth Reese:

All Hallows Night   

Two things I did on Hallows Night:—
Made my house April-clear;
Left open wide my door
To the ghosts of the year.

Then one came in. Across the room
It stood up long and fair—
The ghost that was myself—
And gave me stare for stare.
