Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon 2011


Come with me

All Hallow's night

We'll frighten everyone in sight

Such pranks for you

are justified

And all fun and frolic amplified.

Full moon courtesy of October 11, 2011

Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,

Voices whisper in the trees.

A thousand fearful images and dire suggestions glance along the mind when it is moody and discontented with itself

If a man harbors any sort of fear, it makes him lanlord to a ghost.

Double, double toil and trouble,

Fire burn and cauldren bubble.

Bring forth the raisens and the nuts-

Tonight All Hallow's Spectre

Along the moonlit way.

Deep into darknesspeering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing,

Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

Deap into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dreamed before.

A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently, there is a whispering in the distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snub of the windo, the latch raises......

Ghosts were created when the first man awoke in the night.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadiquete. Our deepest fear is that we are beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

My candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I

saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open.

At first cock crow the ghosts must go back to their quiet graves below.

Raise your spirits, cook up some ghost stories, and make eerie looking Jack-o-Lanterns

Halloween is fun for grownups and kids alike. Especially when you throw an eeire Halloween Party Under The Moon.

On Halloween, witches come true. Wild ghosts escape from dreams.

'Tis now is the very witching time of night....Beware!

'Tis the night- the night

Of the grave's delight, And the warlocks are ar their play:

Ye think that without

the wild winds shout,

But no, it is they - it is they.

From ghoulies

And long leggedy beasties...

Thank you to Anna at frostedpetunias for hosting this wondrous party.
