In Love of Candy

Such little steps
In love of candy
Knocking at my door!

~ A Halloween Haiku ~
by my former student, Patrick McDonough
Community College of Philadelphia, Fall 1997

It always makes me smile, the way Patrick chose to write not "in search" of candy, but "in love" of candy. How well his phrasing captures the spirit of trick - or - treat! As you can see from Sam's bright little face . . .
