An Ode to Cherished Halloween Memories

By Walter Schmitt, Orton Storekeeper

 

Moonlit eyes are glowing bright,

Trick-or-treaters fill the night.

Ghouls and goblins on display,

Old-time candies to give away.
 Don’t forget to keep a few

To give the kid that lives in you.

Caramel, fudge, and spearmint creams,

Licorice and jelly beans, Turkish candy and sour balls,

Butter crunch—we have them all!

There’s more to us than ghosts and sweets,

Like cozy sweaters and flannel sheets.
 Come warm yourself from head to toe,

With classic goods from long ago.

Sweet memories live on every page,

They’ll take you back to a simpler age, When your hardest choice, it would seem,

Was what to be for Halloween.
