It started in the misty morn of a sweet harvest Hallows
As we ate pumpkin pie to mourn the witches' gallows
It was sweet as fall morning dew on the tip of a tongue
And the fresh fall air was refreshing to a sleepy lung
Our cider was hot as the fire in the grate
As we tumbled through leaves in a child-like state.
The sky was cloudy, a pewter grey haze
As we played cat's cradle and ran through the maze
Our sweaters were soft as a mother wolf's fur
And as we snuggled to watch apple dunking we let out a purr
All through the house the merriments went
And we scorned the Christian solemn days of lent
Joyous and full-bellied were we
As harvest went on, and we recited the rule of three
Corn dolls were common and there was squash stew
As the supper cauldron bubbled a wondrous brew
And we burned leaves for the scent and love
As the pewter skies swirled happily above
Pumpkins were picked and plucked
As the little ones for a midday nap were in-tucked
And lunch was delicious as we sat with kith and kin
And we giggled at the ebony kittens tumbling and making a din
All around the leaves were falling
And the thought of the day ending was straight appalling
The dusk sky rumbled a growling song
And we lay by the hearth, warm where we belong
The kittens all curled up on our toes
As the storm blew hard in its tumultuous throes
And as we slowly sank into sleep
The wiccans of old danced in the deep.
Our day of love and play was at an end,
As the moonlight over the trees began to bend
The harvest was plenty and full to our liking
And this year was once again ever-so striking
In daylight we reveled, and in sleep we began
The Celtic cycle of rebirth once again.
