Mankind will not remain on earth forever, but in its quest for light and space, will at first timidly penetrate beyond the confines of the atmosphere, and later will conquer for itself all the space near the sun.

THE WITCHING HOUR




By Jean Bush

Shadow, shadow on the wall;

Merry monsters in the hall.

Ghostly goblins gently peek

At little children faking sleep.


The night is strange as low it roams

Around the snugly lighted homes.

The young ones feel its magic power.

The clock has struck the children’s hour!


Grabbing costumes from the wall,

Then down the stairs and past the hall

To children’s promised midnight feast

As grownups fall for trick or treat.


Grinning faces laughing merry;

Crouching shadows dark and scary.

Late this night there are no dreams

For this night’s name is HALLOWEEN!
