Goblins And Candle Greetings From Heidi
My friend Heidi (who blogs as VirusHead) has posted a great Halloween Page full of history and lore about the upcoming holiday. She includes a focus on the often-overlooked goblin ("The medieval Christian Church included the 'Gobelinus,' a demon that haunted Evreus in the 12th century, in their pantheon of demons"). She opens the page with a poem that, for me, captures well the spirit of this rainy autumn Sunday here in Atlanta:
I send you candle's greeting wise,
a hopeful flame 'gainst light's demise.
The leaves are turned, the harvest's nigh
Remember all - not with a sigh -
but turning threshold of its tide,
admit love's spirit as your guide.
