Weekly Quote #22 ~ Edwin C. Ranck

Mulluane | Thursday, October 09, 2014 | 6 Comments so far

A night when witches skim the air,

When spooks and goblins climb the stair;

When bats rush out with muffled wings,

And now and then the door-bell rings;

But just the funniest thing of all

Is 'cause you can't see when they call.

-- Edwin C. Ranck's Poem: Halloween --

Halloween Poem by Edwin C. Ranck ~ Design by Mulluane

About: This is a weekly feature here in the old belfry. This week in honor of Halloween I chose a public domain poem by Edwin C. Ranck. As always, the design, along with any flaws, is mine. 

If you would like to suggest a quote or short poem (I prefer it be from a SFF author) let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do. No promises though. If a quote is too big I may not be able to reproduce it in the space available. I do promise to try though!

  1. What a treat! And no tricks attached... ;-)

    1. Oddly it was really hard to find a good (and short) reference to Halloween.


  2. It's certainly in the October spirit. {Smile}


  3. Ahhhh! *hides* I'm pretty scared by Halloween stuff and the end of this one sounds creep, but I love this feature :D
