Halloween In The Deep Night - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Festival in the deep night
Parade of colours and masks
Time to dwell in darkness
And what it can bring to life.

It is time in the year when
People pose in disguise,
playing the role of the good
the bad, the sinners and saints.

Let us celebrate this night
of Halloween in fear and delight
Let us pose in disguise and see
Ourselves behind our own masks.
