sharing.

Standard

they told santa that they would

make sure to send some cookies along for mrs. claus,

because he usually gets to all of them

and she doesn’t get any treats.

the note is to make sure that he doesn’t forget to share.

 – happy christmas to all –

“sharing the same meal reaffirms kinship.”

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
