With Black Line Illustrations of a Friendly Witch

He was too young to go out
Trick-or-treating anyway,
She told herself, even if

He had been in better health.
He was barely a toddler.
Toddler’s remember nothing.

It’s really for the parents
To take pictures of the kids
When they’re that young, anyway.

He won’t know what he’s missing.
Still, she was a little sad
And wanted to celebrate,

At least mark the occasion,
So she made him pumpkin pie,
And read a bedtime story

About a sweet foolish witch,
And that was their Halloween,
The year when he was injured

Just two months past three years old,
And half-remembered the night
And the book she read to him.
