It’s that time of year again! My mother would recite this poem to us as kids during the post trick-or-treating wind down, year after year. Being from Indiana, she took great pride in reading aloud the works of James Whitcomb Riley, also a native Indianan. Her particular favorite character was Little Orphan Annie.
Now, between the sugar buzz and the scared-straight threat of goblin snatching, Halloween was typically a sleepless night full of spooky mind wandering, hearing every creak, and questioning the shadows on the wall. Truth be told, it was inadvertently a genius plan on my mom’s part as this was almost guaranteed a household of well behaved children through to the new year. So parents take heed. If you are seeking a less stress filled holiday season, consider this poem. For added effect, tell it by the hearth with the lights down low…
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Be good or…the Gobble-uns might gits you Ef you Don’t Watch Out!
LITTLE ORPHANT ANNIE
by: James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916)
She can’t hold her liquor either.
