Happy Halloween! Does anyone remember this poem? [View all]

I memorized it in first grade, many years ago.

Everything is black and gold,
Black and gold tonight:
Yellow pumpkin, yellow moon,
Yellow candlelight;

Jet-black cat with golden eyes,
Shadows black as ink,
Firelight blinking in the dark
With a yellow blink.

Black and gold, black and gold,
Nothing in between —
When the world turns black and gold,
Then it’s Halloween!

—“Black and Gold,” a children’s poem by Nancy Byrd Turner,
collected in My Poetry Book, ©1934, 1956 Holt, Rinehart and Winston
