    These are not all of Nancy Byrd Turners poems. I'm looking for the lyrics to her 1925 poem, Children who walk in Jesus' Way. Should you coms across it, please add it here. Thanks.

Best Poem of Nancy Byrd Turner

Black And Gold

Everything is black and gold,
Black and gold, to-night:
Yellow pumpkins, yellow moon
Yellow candlelight;

Jet-black cats with golden eyes
Shadows black as ink,
Firelight blinking in the dark
With a yellow blink

Black and gold, black and gold
Nothing in between-
When the world turns black and gold
Then it's Halloween!
