Jack-'O-Lantern - Poem by John Bannister Tabb

'Jack-o'-lantern, Jack-o'-Lantern,
Tell me where you hide by day?'
'In the cradle where the vapours
Dream the sunlit hours away.'


'Jack-o'-Lantern, Jack-o'-Lantern,
Who rekindles you at night?'
'Any firefly in the meadow
Lends a Jack-o'-Lantern light.'
