Standard

“two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves. 

they flickered out saying: 

“It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds.”

all hallows’ eve.

Standard

I spot the hills 
With yellow balls in autumn. 
I light the prairie cornfields 
Orange and tawny gold clusters 
And I am called pumpkins. 
On the last of October 
When dusk is fallen 
Children join hands 
And circle round me 
Singing ghost songs 
And love to the harvest moon; 
I am a jack-o’-lantern 
With terrible teeth 
And the children know 
I am fooling.

-"theme in yellow" -carl sandburg 1878-1967
