Hear that ghostly, woeful wail?
I think that tree is howling.
Oaks don’t usually make a face,
but that bark is clearly scowling.
See those branches bend and reach
like the arms of a hungry hag?
I think those bony fingers want to
grab my goodie bag!
On one of my recent walks around the block I noticed a few trees making faces at me. I think they might have been getting ready for the holiday. Have a spooky, spectacular day!
