It's that time of the year.
With August right around the corner, it's time to start getting into a Halloween frame of mind. Right about now is when I begin thinking about our annual Halloween poem - what I want it to say; in what new direction I want to take it. I saved the above poem from a blog post awhile back by Pumpkinrot. It struck a chord with me, and the more I read it, the more I think this is the theme I want to go with: an old fashioned All Hallow's Eve - a throwback of sorts - a poem (and invite) that is rich with nostalgia and reminiscent of those classic Halloween images that are 'vintage' to our youth, but easily recalled by the rest of us old-timers.
I like the sound of that...
