I love October! On my walks I enjoy seeing Halloween decorations.

One day I saw this bumper sticker.

My poem goes back to 1984. Happy Halloween!!!


The large cat walked gracefully by the fence
And slipped out of sight
Just as day turned into night
I stared after him and thought
“That was a black cat!”
The first pure black cat
I remember in our neighborhood!

I walked up the hill
And the lamp blinked out as I went by
While the just-past-full moon was in the sky.

What does it mean?
Is it only by chance
That it’s almost Halloween?
