    Nicely turned memory poem, Tanner! Nice your father went along with your plan and didn’t join the other children in their thoughts if how things should be. For Halloween now I wear one of my daughters’ witch’s hats with florescent orange hair while I give out candy.

    And now, sans hat, you are a wizard with words, Tanner.

    So far from Kansas
    only to dissolve
    a pail of water.
    "What a World. What a World."
    Maybe not in the USA
    but In England around
    1953 there was a reissue of
    just-Pre-War
    The Wizard of Oz
    with Judy Garland et al

    That's a long standing memory Tanner. Nowadays you'd fit right in - if the mood for such still strikes your fancy.

    Typographical error (perhaps?) Witches reduced to Witch's, denoting possession, and not plurality. Right?

    A very beautiful recounting, Tanner.

    Touching, affecting.

    Halloween, 1953




    At age 6 I wanted to be a Witch
    For Halloween and my father
    In his upholstery shop
    Made me a tall hat with black cambric fabric

    Other children that night
    Told me that a Witch could not be a boy
    And laughed often at me
    As I went on my innocent Trick or Treat way

    What bothered me most I recall
    Was that the tall Witch's hat kept falling off
    I know now that gusts of wind
    Protected me that night so long ago
